This sub-corpus contains the original recordings made by Volker Heeschen since 1974 during several field trips (in full length, i.e. un-cut). The original reel-to-reel and tape recordings have been digitized within the DoBeS project “Documentation Summits in the Central Mountains of Papua”, funded by the Volkswagen Foundation. References throughout the corpus refer to the original recordings archived under this node. Those named "Tb" are digitized reel-to-reel tapes, those named "MD" are from mini-discs, and all remaining digitizations originate from actual cassette tapes.
