    from The Wire Magazine Added 6,239 44 0

    The Wire takes a tour of the British Library's Sound Archive, deep below its London residences on the Euston Road, to talk about sound conservation and take a tour of its collections with some of its key sound curators. "The 20th century was about audiovisual material, our memory of the 20th century is heavily audiovisual, but our sense of the 21st century is going to be a different kind of audiovisual... archiving is not going to be so much about what we can bring in, but about what to exclude," says Will Prentice, British Library Audio Engineer and Conservation Specialist. Nathan Budzinski interviews Popular Music Curator Andy Linehan, Audio Engineer, Conservation specialist Will Prentice, and Wildlife Sounds Curator Cheryl Tipp.

                Video recorded and edited for Fallon Films by James Lowry. http://www.fallon.co.uk/ Sound recorded, edited and designed by Lee Grainge. This is the first edit of this Viral intended for the Asian market. My first brief was to create an epic sounding piece whilst keeping the over-all sound simplistic. I recorded on location all the sounds over a period of a day, using a variant of stereo mono techniques and natural reverbs. The music has been left out of this upload. This is a pre-mix version.
