Hi all,

I'm retired and never was officially an 
archivist, just a recording engineer who did 
restoration work in the past.  I'm moving to 
Virginia, and wouyld like to attend meetings in 
DC when time permits.

How do I find out about them?

Bob Cham

>1. Check the list of forthcoming events on the NY Chapter's webpage at

>2. Check ARSC's homepage under "News and Events":
>http://www.arsc-audio.org/index.php.  We try to post an announcement with
>details at least a week before the event date.

>3. Watch for an announcment to be sent out on ARSCList a week before the

>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
>information.
>
>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.
