Making Records,Command Performance (1942) +bonus clip
How shellac records were produced and manufactured… Command Performance1942 and Living Stero1958
.It is great to see how things used to be made, and this film does an excellent job. And it gives a great view of the ledgendary Victor vault (long since decimated) and the pressing plant in Camden (long since demolished).
An outstanding RCA Victor 1942 documentary on how shellac records were made. Well written narration, excellent visualization. Enjoyed hearing Milton Cross.
Do you see how each record is individually made and pressed? There is such a human involvement, that gives it that warm cozy touch to it. I personally love 78s and you can really get quite depth from them. It would though be neat to see how accoustic records were made before they went to electric recording in the late 20s. I expect some of the processes didn’t change. A great look into the past!
++++++BONUS FILM+++++++This short film was a test for Edison’s “Kinetophone” project, the first attempt in history to record sound and moving image in synchronization. This was an experiment by William Dickson to put sound and film together either in 1894 or 1895. Unfortunately, this experiment failed because they didn’t understand synchronization of sound and film. The large cone on the left hand side of the frame is the “microphone” for the wax cylinder recorder (off-camera). The Library of Congress had the film. The wax cylinder soundtrack, however, was believed lost for many years. Tantalizingly, a broken cylinder labeled “Violin by WKL Dickson with Kineto” was catalogued in the 1964 inventory at the Edison National Historic Site. In 1998, Patrick Loughney, curator of Film and Television at the Library of Congress, retrieved the cylinder and had it repaired and re-recorded at the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archive of Recorded Sound, Lincoln Center, New York. Since the Library did not possess the necessary synchronizing technology, Loughney – at the suggestion of producer Rick Schmidlin – sent multi-Oscar winner Walter Murch a videotape of the 17 seconds of film and an audiocassette of 3 minutes and 20 seconds of sound with a request to marry the two. By digitizing the media and using digital editing software, Murch was able to synchronize them and complete the failed experiment 105 years later.
