1. The new Les Miserables is the first movie
musical in history to be made with live singing on set (i.e. not overdubbed),
using wireless body mikes (Of course they introduce their own sense
of unreality). A live piano is on set and the orchestra is dubbed later.
2. From President Robert Miller: Can you
add a request for a contribution to the BSO Archives of a working Betamax
VCR to the meeting notice. The portable unit we are currently using
does not sync. A lead to a Sony PCM-601 (the unit with the SPDIF output)
would also be appreciated.
3. The audiokarma fest is happening Saturday,
2/23. Place: Franks Shop, 55 Sterling St., Clinton, MA 01510, just over
the railroad tracks.
