[ARSCLIST] Reminder: What Would Woody Do? Restoration and Recession - THURSDAY

Hope you can join us! --Marcos

> ARSC New York Chapter
> April 2009 Meeting
> Thursday, 4/16/09
> at the Archive of Contemporary Music
> 54 White St., Tribeca, New York
> (Take the 1 to Franklin St; A,C,E to Canal St; or the N,Q,R,W to Canal St)
> From 7pm to 9pm – doors (and refreshments) at 6:30
> The great Woody Guthrie was no stranger to financial hard times.  As a
> young man during the Great Depression and the great Dust Bowl of the
> 1930s, he had to invent new ways of making ends meet through his
> music.
> Fast forward to 2009:  The economy is in the dumps, the music business
> as we know it appears to be on the brink of extinction, and libraries
> and archives worldwide are struggling with ever-shrinking budgets.
> Might we find comfort in those bygone Great Depression songs?  Are we
> on the threshold of something new?
> Perhaps.  Archivists HILLEL ARNOLD and TIFFANY LOISELLE will talk
> about audio treasures in the Woody Guthrie Archives (including the
> Grammy-winning 1949 wires), and mastering and restoration engineer
> STEVE ROSENTHAL of The Magic Shop will talk about new partnerships and
> delivery systems for restoration projects in these tough times.  All
> the while, our host the ARChive of Contemporary Music is having a
> banner year, as it receives recordings which would otherwise find
> themselves in dumpsters.
> We hope you will join us for these inspiring presentations!
> A three-time Grammy winner, STEVE ROSENTHAL is the owner of The Magic
> Shop recording studio in Soho, where since 1988 he has recorded
> artists from The Ramones to Lou Reed to Coldplay. The Magic Shop
> houses The Blue Room, a facility for high quality audio restoration
> and analog to digital transfer.  Recent projects there include the
> reissues of the Jelly Roll Morton Library of Congress Recordings, The
> Sam Cooke Collection, Frank Sinatra at the Sands, and The John
> Phillips Archive. http://www.magicshopny.com/
> Since 2007, TIFFANY LOISELLE has been the Archivist at the Woody
> Guthrie Archives, where she oversees all daily activities including
> researcher requests, image licensing, and collection maintenance.  She
> also oversees new initiatives, such as reformatting and digitization
> projects aimed at ensuring that researchers can access all materials
> held by the Archives.
> A graduate of NYU’s Archival Management Program, HILLEL ARNOLD
> currently works at the Tamiment Library/Robert F. Wagner Labor
> Archive. During 2005-2007 he also worked as the Archives Assistant at
