Thank you for posting.
Gave me goosebumps and a big smile on my face
PS. Those 78rpm records are spinning fast
The 78 Project is a documentary and recording journey inspired by Alan Lomax and his quest to capture music where it lived throughout the early 20th century. Our project brings the spirit of his work into the present as we pair breakthrough musicians with the songs and the fascinating recording technology of the past. With just one microphone, one authentic 1930′s Presto direct-to-acetate disk recorder, and one blank lacquer disc, musicians are given one take to cut a record anywhere they choose. What we have found is that the film, music and feelings that result defy space and time, living music inspired by ghosts. - See more at: http://the78project.com/about/#sthash.a7rRBusR.dpuf
Very cool Presto history… sharing with some media pundits I know. Thx
I was immediately reminded of the beginning of the film Crossroads where they recorded Robert Johnson direct to disc on one of these.
