The 78 Project Movie


Monday, August 18, 2014
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


This festival favorite tracks the 78 Project as it journeys across America to make intimate 78 rpm records with an array of musicians—folk artists, punk rockers, Cajun singers, and others— and technologists, historians, and other experts in every facet of field recording add their insights. Using a 1930s Presto direct-to-disk recorder and one microphone, each session consists of one three-minute take. Everyone is astonished by the rich sound of the antique disks and the ineffable romance of old-time recordings.
