Grüezi. I'm Carl Flisch, born 1972 (Pseudo: Fuchur). My work focuses on the digitization of public domain music and the copyright investigation of 78 rpm gramophone records. Visit my uploads inside the Wikimedia Commons. I'm a member of Wikimedia Austria and Wikimedia CH.

Projects

IG Schweizer Internetradio

The Swiss Internet Radio Association is the users association of the Swiss webcasters. I've founded the organization in 2004. Read more: here.

Swiss Foundation Public Domain

The Swiss Foundation Public Domain is a charitable organization under the supervision of the Federal Department of Home Affairs. The foundation is specialized in the conservation and utilization of public domain music and film material. We see our mission as rescuing recordings from past decades, produced on sensitive and easily damaged materials, from deterioration and potential oblivion. Our first goal is to have gramophone records and motion pictures, which are an invaluable resource, transformed into longterm readable and usable data files by expert staff, using state of the art procedures (such as FLAC and Theora). Our second goal is the investigation of the copyright status, the cataloging of the description of any work in our database and the upload to Wikimedia Commons.

The Public Domain Project is supported by Wikimedia CH and Wikimedia Deutschland. Since April 2014, the Dominio Público Sonoro Uruguay becomes the official representative in South America as a independent chapter.
