    of material I am looking for I know I m looking for audio recordings primarily containing spoken voice but other than that I am casting the net wide initially for a variety of reasons I don t want to get my heart set on something that I think is available only to find out that is isn t and more importantly to me I really want to use this experience as a research opportunity in the broadest sense of that word Ideally I will be able to sample a whole bunch of disparate types of recordings from different fields of study different historical times different types of people and material collected for a variety of different purposes Interestingly I learned that many recordings SI has made in the past were made exclusively for the transcript as the final product In other words they did not really care about the audio recording itself as long as it was good enough for someone to transcribe This approach led to things like Isamu Noguchi s dog barking throughout his interview which I think is pretty cool but others may not I guess this made sense in the past but I m very glad they didn t throw all the original recordings out So needless to say asking for a random sampling of audio recordings from a particular archive is not the typical request that folks here get but they have all been very open minded and encouraging so I m excited I m starting out with some from the Archives of American Art and got to know Wolf Kahn from the 70 s a bit earlier today who said among many other interesting things We start things we don t try to finish anything Nice Share Tweet Ongoing Projects aesthetic evidence Bring Your

  • Halsey Burgund | Settling in at SI
    the fancy office building the supply room and the long easily confused hallways I am being housed in the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian as one of my fellowship advisors is located here and a significant chunk of the oral history archives at SI are housed here And those not surprisingly are what I am interested in My first task is going to be to try to figure out what oral history archives exist in the entire Smithsonian and then figure out how to access them I started this task today with a visit to Mark Taylor the moving picture archivist at the National Air and Space Museum NASM I got a tour of that building which was pretty amazing and then Mark told me about the archives that they have Sadly it seems that the majority of their audio archives are on open reel 7 format and they do not have the ability to play such media at this point So either I need to find a player or those are off limits But they do have a bunch of historical interviews conference recordings and documentary soundtracks all of which are somehow related to things that blast off or have propellers both of which are pretty cool in my book I am very excited about some of the film video material they have as well Much of it does not include audio unfortunately but some does including some really interesting sounding documentaries infomercials on things like how your missionary activities could be enhanced by owning a new Cessna and what to do if your single jet engine exhaust system overheats usually it s best to nose up and eject I learned that the big caveat with all this material is that it is currently not available as
