Preserving the stories of significant individuals in sound recording generally and magnetic recording specifically is a major project of MOMSR. The Museum’s goal is to document the stories of those persons who contributed significant inventions, manufactured equipment and who engineered and produced audio recordings, especially in the areas of music, broadcast, film/video and science. These interviews will be available on MOMSR’s web site and in the permanent facility when it is created. These interviews have also been made available to the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (Grammy’s).
The Museum of Magnetic Sound Recording greatly appreciates Rupert & Evelyn Neve, Dodee & Billy Crockett of Blue rock Studios and Josh with Rupert Neve Designs, LLC for granting us permission to make this video available.
On March 16,2013 Museum Directors Chris & Martin Theophilus were invited to Dodee and Billy Crockett's Blue Rock Studios' birthday party and Neve 5088 console dedication. We arrived and wandered through the incredible facility. As luck would have it, we ended up in the back of the control room just as Rupert came in for Billy's interview. Being in a great spot, we videotaped the interview and have received permission to share it on the MOMSR web site.
Please help us create a permanent public home for this collection and other historical recording devices!
