The website I’ve been working on for a few months has just been launched today. It’s called Gallica Studio and it aims at encouraging and showcasing creative or innovative uses of the digital library Gallica‘s contents.
The following video was made for the occasion by the French motion designer Julien Schickel. It shows a 1902 advertisement poster for the French Gramophone Company from the BnF collection coming to life with music. It uses a Gramophone Company recording from the Paris Music Library featuring a waltz composed by Luigi Arditi and performed by French soprano Lucette Korsoff.
