Sunday 29 March 2015 12.30pm – 3.30pm FREE

Each workshop will give you the opportunity to learn about the history of sound recording, and experience, use and test technologies from the past, including:

Attendees are encouraged, but not required, to bring musical instruments or readings to record; the technologies work best with acoustic style music.
