Performing, Recording and (Re)constructing: A Guide for Historically-Informed Performance

This talk introduces Leverhulme-funded research project “(Re)constructing Early Recordings: a guide for historically-informed performance”, which focusses on the reconstruction and simulation of the mechanical recording process to capture performances using wax cylinders and digital technologies. Through the presentation of research findings, it will discuss the value of reconstructions of passed recording techniques, in terms of preserving forms of performance practice, and propose a method for their future analysis and use.
