Pound of Cure or Ounce of Prevention? Archiving and Preservation in Action
[Feature] At the 131st Convention held last October, archiving and preservation of audio material was a prominent topic in the program. A tutorial laid down the why, how, and what of audio preservation, followed by fascinating workshops on the practical exploitation of record company archives in the form of reissues of some of the greatest acts in the history of sound. The challenges of getting the best out of recorded material stored in warehouses and vaults were thoroughly examined, and we discover that an ounce of prevention is probably more worthwhile than a pound of cure when it comes to treating the “patient” that is the valuable historical asset of a record company or radio station’s archive.
