New APRS event: "Before there were Microphones"

Wax Cylinder Recording Session Workshop
The APRS, in association with The Vulcan Cylinder Record Company and the Royal College of Music Studios, are presenting a recording session workshop exploring wax cylinder studio techniques from the early 20th Century.

Date: May 26th, 2015
Venue: Belle Shenkman Recording Studio, Royal College of Music, London

For details and how to book, log in at the MPG website and go to the MPG Event page. This is event is open to MPG Full Members only.

What will be covered during the workshop session
Duncan Miller, who appeared in the recent BBC Four Series The Sound of Song by Neil Brand, has made acoustic recordings on cylinder and disc since the early 1980s. Using typical machinery and methods used in the formative years of the recording industry and with the assistance of student musicians, he will produce wax cylinder master records in front of a live audience.

Duncan explains: "Depending on the performers available, we will be selecting recording horn, choosing the right diaphragm, positioning performers for the correct balance and doing numbers of tests to ensure that we are getting a result that will please the public and play well on the phonograph in the managing director’s office (the bench mark of early recording quality). It is possible we shall cover such subjects as blasting, wax blank preparation, advance ball recorder setting, horn resonance, diaphragm resonance and sensitivity versus frequency response. We may even touch on the format wars in the relative merits of cylinders and discs. A chance to get all those questions answered as to how the cylinder and disc records that founded the industry were made in the 30-year period that preceded the introduction of the microphone".

Make your own recording - first-come, first-served
In addition to the recordings made by student performers, if time allows, there may be an opportunity for members attending to make their own recording. If you are a budding star of wax cylinder and can bring your own instrument, mention this when you reserve your place for the evening. However, places for this opportunity will be limited to the first two to request a spot. There will, however, be a chance for everyone to record at the end of the session when Duncan will lead the whole audience in a "Descriptive Selection", the name given to novelty recordings of the era. With this in mind members are encouraged to bring along their favourite acoustic sound effect; coconut shells, duck calls, swannee whistles, car horns all welome for the riotous waxy finale.

New Nordic sound symposium sundvolden hotel 28-31 may 2015, norway

It is a great pleasure to welcome to a new sound event organized by Nordic Sound Symposium

The board has after some discussions decided to settle the dates 28 – 31 May 2015 for the event. Earlier Autumn has been the preferred time of the year but feedback has convinced us that September/ October was not optimal. The surroundings of the hotel is just stunning and we hope for nice weather the last weekend in May.

Traditionally up through the years the Symposiums have been arranged at Bolkesjø Hotel. Bolkesjø has over the years become part of the branding for the event. The hotel closed down some years ago and we had to find another place to go on with. Sundvolden Hotel was chosen. The Hotel is very nicely located close to Tyrifjorden. It is half way to Hønefoss from Oslo. From the city of Oslo it takes 40 minutes by car. From Oslo bus terminal busses go to Hønefoss frequently. The busses stops outside the hotel.

Read more about the hotel here: Sundvolden

Driving by car – 40 minutes from Oslo City - parking possibilities outside the hotel.

Bus from Oslo bus terminal – check departures here – www.nettbuss.no

The association struggles to keep the price pr. person as low as possible. The cost is set to be 7000 NOK. This includes the following:

Access to all presentations and exhibitions
Hotel accommodation for 3 nights
All meals included in the whole period including the festive dinner Saturday night
Student price 6000 NOK. Student identity card must be valid.

Early Bird:
Registration before 15th of March means the price is reduced to 6500 NOK.

Registration must be done here.

Fill out the form and press the SUBMIT button. Invoice will be submitted to you.

The program is in progress these days. You can read more about the program here.
Kevin Gross, Morten Lindberg, Eddy B. Brixen, Andreas Hildebrand, Nadja Wallaszkovits, Florian Camerer, Jan Lykke, Greg Shay, Fredrik Bergholtz is coming!

New WNYC Launches First-Ever Women's Podcast Festival
Nation’s top female podcast hosts and producers gather to workshop the future of dynamic podcast content creation

June 4 & 5 at The Greene Space at WNYC & WQXR

On June 4-5, WNYC, producer of innovative podcasts including Death, Sex & Money, On the Media, Radiolab and Freakonomics Radio, will convene the first-ever women's podcast festival, “Werk It: How to Be a Grown Ass Podcaster.”

Coming just one month after co-hosting the industry’s first podcasting upfront, WNYC is bringing together some of today's brightest women working in audio, digital media and the arts. “Werk It” is an invite-only two-day festival of exclusive industry workshops, panel discussions and networking opportunities, plus two evenings of dynamic live public events.

Guided by a who's who of women in media including Anna Sale (host, WNYC’s Death, Sex & Money, Roxane Gay (author, Bad Feminist), Lulu Miller (co-host, Invisibilia), Crissle (co-host, The Read), among many others, festival participants will spend each day workshopping the challenges behind developing, pitching and producing phenomenal podcasts.

In 2014, the Women's Media Center reported that gender inequality among journalists is evident across all media outlets and reporting on all issues, with men receiving 63% of the byline credits in print, Internet and wire news. A quick glance at iTunes today reveals that only 15 of the top 100 podcasts on iTunes are hosted by women. Spearheaded by Laura R. Walker, president and CEO of New York Public Radio, WNYC's 'Werk It' women's podcast festival will help give voice to the community of women who need to be heard.

“One of the fundamental roles of public media is to bring new voices and new ideas to the forefront,” said Walker. “So far, male voices have dominated the podcasting landscape, but that is changing! This first-ever women’s podcasting festival hosted by WNYC is an indication of that change underway. WNYC is so pleased to have the support of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting as we convene the leading female voices, producers and creative thinkers in audio production to amplify women’s voices, begin new types of conversations and spur further innovation in podcasting.”

The festival’s two special evening events open to the public at The Greene Space at WNYC and WQXR will be available for live streaming and on-demand viewing at http://www.thegreenespace.org/
