Fellowship grant for preservation project Reply

Computer music faculty members McGregor Boyle and Geoffrey Wright and graduate student Heather Woodworth, have received a Center for Educational Resources Technology Fellowship grant from Johns Hopkins University. Their project, “Performance Practice of 20th Century Electroacoustic Music: A Test Case as Prototype” focused primarily on the problems associated with the preservation and digitization of analog tapes. Heather spent the summer exploring this issue and digitizing analog tapes in the Jean Eichelberger Ivey collection. The results of this project will be used as a teaching aid for the History of Electroacoustic Music course. For more information, please visit the project proposal.
