The vibrant Pacific Northwest city of Seattle, Washington -- the "Emerald
City" -- is the setting for the 40th annual ARSC conference, May 17-20. Join

CONFERENCE PROGRAM

ARSC is dedicated to the preservation and study of sound recordings -- in
all genres of music and speech, in all formats, and from all periods.
Reflecting this broad mission, the upcoming conference offers a diverse
array of talks and sessions that will appeal to both professionals and
collectors. Scheduled talks include:

-- "New Imaging Methods Applied to Mechanical Sound Carrier Preservation and
Access" (Carl Haber)
-- "Licensing in the Music Industry" (Ava Lawrence)
-- "80,000 LPs Times 1122 Miles: The Wilson Processing Project & OCLC Take
on NYPL's Uncataloged Vinyl" (Peter Hirsch)
-- "The Northwest Sound: Recordings, Marketplace, and Memory" (Craig
Morrison)
-- "The Ins and Outs of Making a Good Oral History" (Marie Azile O'Connell)
-- "From the Handcrank to the Hyperlink: Technical Means and Technological
Methods of the UCSB Cylinder Digitization Project" (David Seubert and Noah
Pollaczek)
-- "Saving the Unique Sounds of American Political Campaigning" (Lewis
Mazanti)
-- "Grant Funding Strategies for Sound Collections" (Gayle Palmer)
-- "MuDoc: A New Model for Digital Music Archiving and Retrieval" (Michael
Frishkopf)
-- "Milton Kaye -- New York Pianist" (Dennis D. Rooney)
-- David Levine on the Naxos Decision
-- "Dobbin: New Techniques in Audio Mass Processing" (Joerg Houpert and
Jerome Luepkes)
-- "Gospel Music as Story: The Life and Work of Otis Jackson" (Robert M.
Marovich)
-- "Progress and Problems in Modern-Day Jazz Discography" (Noal Cohen)

The ARSC Technical Committee's roundtable is scheduled for Thursday
afternoon. Later that evening, bring your questions to the "Ask the
Technical Committee" session.

Share your expertise or favorite collecting story at the "Collectors'
Roundtable" on Friday evening. This informal session always features amusing
anecdotes among the informative and entertaining discussions.


TOUR

One of the conference highlights will be the free tour of Benaroya Hall,
home of the Seattle Symphony since 1998. Noted for its architectural and
acoustical design, Benaroya houses an auditorium, a recital hall, and the
4,490-pipe Watjen Organ. Please join us for this special tour led by
symphony engineer Al Swanson and public information specialist Steven Lowe,
as they provide a behind-the-scenes look at the hall and discuss the
challenges of recording a major American orchestra.


WORKSHOP

The pre-conference workshop, "A Tutorial on the Preservation of Audio in the
Digital Domain," will be held May 17, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., at the hotel's
Bainbridge Room. The workshop registration fee is not included in the
conference registration fee. Early workshop registration (postmarked by
April 24) is $70 for ARSC members, $80 for non-members, and $30 for
students. Detailed information about the workshop can be found at:
http://arsc-audio.org/workshop2006.html.


BANQUET

Limited seating is available for the ARSC Awards Banquet on Saturday
evening. For just $35, attendees have their choice of portobello mushroom
ravioli, salmon with basil bruchetta, or chicken with mango chutney. Indulge
in either lemon riviera or chocolate decadence for desert.

The Buttersprites, a Seattle-based post-grunge, post-punk all-girl band,
will provide our after-banquet entertainment. The band's "gleefully nutty
music and tongue-in-cheek lyrics, mostly sung in Japanese," should bring a
unique and memorable close to the conference.

Please join us for our first Seattle conference. You won't have to fight off
the Wicked Witch's winged monkeys en route to this "Emerald City."
