Multimedia archivist, musician and producer Jocelyn Arem will offer a multimedia presentation, “Reviving, Restoring and Re-imaging the Music Archive,” at 8pm on Thursday (March 26) at Skidmore College’s Filene Recital Hall in Saratoga Springs. Admission is free.
The program will feature music culled from the 2013 three-CD box set, Live at Caffe Lena: Music from America’s Legendary Coffeehouse (1967-2013), which Arem co-produced with Steve Rosenthal. The evening will start with a presentation on the audio restoration process by Arem, Rosenthal and Jessica Thompson, her colleagues from the Magic Shop Studio in NYC. Then they’ll examine the process with examples of the original audiotape recordings, the restored, re-mastered recordings and finally live performances.
