TOM FINE and “The Dawn of Digital”

Tom Fine will summarize his research that led to his ARSC Journal article,
"The Dawn of Digital Recording," present some additional facts about
"firsts" in the commercial digital recording field, and play some examples
of early digital recordings. We have now "lived digital" in the
professional recording business for 40+ years. To put that in perspective,
that's a greater number of years than from the dawn of electrical disk
recording to stereo Lps. Since the 1970s, much of the early digital history
has been lost or mythologized (the latest example being wrong "history"
posted at the NARAS P&E Wing's website). The ARSC Journal article and this
multi-media presentation aim to set the record straight, presenting
first-hand accounts, recorded sound examples and discographical

Tom Fine is a writer, editor and sound engineer based in Brewster NY. He is
a member of ARSC and the AES. His analog-to-digital transfer business
concentrates on large institutional/archival and private collections. Most
of the analog audio collection of Poets House, located in Battery Park
City, was transferred by Fine. All of that audio is now available to
patrons in a central, searchable digital multi-media database. Fine most
recently worked on production and wrote booklet copy for the new Mercury
Living Presence CD and Lp box sets to be released this spring from
UMG/Decca Classics.
