2009 ARSC Conference Recordings

Even if you are not a member of the ARSC, I highly advocate you check out some of the presentations. It's no surprise the ARSC recorded and archived everything at their own event. Audio and powerpoint presentations are free online. It's be ironic if they did not.


The presentations were amazing and highlights include:

The Fight for Copyright Reform and What It Means For You

Cross the Water Blues: Musical Archeology in Imperial Germany

Sam Manning: West Indian Immigrant Life, Music, and Theater in the Harlem Jazz Age

The State of Audio Preservation in the United States: A National Study and Next Steps

Access to Historic Field Recordings: The American Folklife Center's Digital Card Catalog

From Blue Horizon to Saydisc: Independent Record Labels in the British Blues Revival

Original Television Audio Air Checks of Lost Television Broadcasts: 1946-1972

Pink Noise and Hot Jazz: Restoration Techniques, Subtle and Profound

Reproducing Cylinder Recordings: An Examination of Differences between Acoustic and Electronic Methodology

Quodlibet for a Polymorphous Polymath: The Raymond Scott Collection
