Pushing back the silence: a new technology, and the battle to save old recordings

Pushing back the silence: a new technology, and the battle to save old recordings | Music, Theatre, and Dance | Scoop.it
An experimental physicist named Carl Haber has won wide recognition, and a MacArthur Fellowship, for a revolutionary image-scanning technology that has the power to pull sound from rare and fragile recordings without touching them, and in so doing, to help protect some of the most vulnerable corners of this country’s aural heritage. Over the last few months, a large converted mill building in Andover has become home to the fourth groove-scanning system in the country. The IRENE system in Andover lives at the Northeast Document Conservation Center, an independent conservation lab. In a small back room, a sound archivist has been working daily, scanning all varieties of records as well as older wax cylinders whose grooves are etched vertically and therefore require a special 3-D scanning technique.
