There are undiscovered musical treasures potentially fading away in closets, basements and storage units around the world. Seattle radio station KEXP teamed up with local universities and media organizations to help save a little of this cultural history with the Pop-Up Music Memory Digitization Lab. For one day members of the public were invited to bring their audio and video tapes of home- and self-recorded music performances for digitizing and archiving.
KEXP’s Media Asset Librarian Dylan Flesch and Libby S. Hopfauf, Audiovisual Archivist for Moving Image Preservation of Puget Sound, guest to tell us about the event. They explain why it’s vital to preserve these music memories right now, and give some advice for folks and organizations who want to join in the effort.
