GASP!  Excellent story, and I love how it emphasizes sound. And it is so true. My grandmother used to record me singing when I was a small child on a little recorder. One day about 15 years ago I went to listen to it, expecting to just laugh at my high pitched and childish voice, which was very on-key I might say! Instead when I pressed play, I heard her voice saying something to me. I immediately stopped the tape and was overcome by emotion. I hadn’t heard her voice since she’d died years earlier. Man, that moment hits me just as hard now, and I’m not even hearing it!  I never even got to my singing.  I have some micro cassette recordings of my family playing cards in the 90s. I have not listened to them since ever, but I know it would be crazy to hear it now and hear my (dead) dad‘s voice.

 

Sound is so fleeting.  Invisible and instantly gone. What a privilege it is to preserve it for a living.

Film sound preservation is different from film image preservation in one very important way:  the image on the film is comprised of discrete still images that, when used along with a shutter, simply fool the brain into perceiving smooth motion.  

 

However, the audio on the film is continuous and requires continuous movement to properly convey the same level of realism and quality as the picture.

 

This difference between motion picture images and sound can be seen in the above picture of a composite print.  

 

Just continuous movement is not enough for good sound, though ...

Thanks for posting that, Mono. I've always liked Laurie Anderson - she's always been incredibly innovative. And her point about "stories" as the basis of all her work is instructive. Stories are the basis of all of our work, when it comes down to it.
