Keeping Tracks

The British Library Sound Archive is to hold a one day symposium looking at music archiving in the digital age, called ‘Keeping Tracks’, on 21 Mar. The event invites labels, archives, institutions and individuals to come and discuss preserving music in the 21st century.

Curator Of Digital Music Recordings at The British Library, Alex Wilson told CMU: “‘Keeping Tracks’ is a fantastic opportunity for The British Library to talk about its collections and how we preserve, conserve and give access to them; be they a 100 year old wax cylinder or a brand new born digital file. It’s also a great chance to gather different sectors of the industry – tech, labels, metadata, archives – in one room to talk about an area that usually gets overlooked in music conferences”.
