About

The Detroit Sound Conservancy was founded by Dr. Carleton Gholz as a 501(c)3 Non-Profit in 2012 in order to “increase awareness of and support to Detroit’s musical heritage through advocacy, preservation and education in the spirit of vigilance and solidarity.”

The DSC is concerned with preserving a wide range of artifacts that include the following:

  • Analog tapes from cassettes to reel-to-reel original multi-tracks and master tapes
  • Oral history transcriptions and recordings
  • Vinyl recordings from 78’s and LPs to acetates and original radio transcription discs
  • Paper ephemera – Musical scores, radio station archives, sheet music, event posters and interview transcriptions
  • Landmarks – The physical locations where the Detroit sound was created are equally important as the product they generate

Its vaults house a library of LPs, 78s, 45s and cassettes; oral histories; manuscripts and newspaper clippings.
