Wax Cylinder Recording

On August 16, 2017, Martin Fisher of Middle Tennessee State University's Center for Popular Music joined the band Roochie Toochie and Ragtime Shepherd Kings for an intimate Salon in Mrs. M.—'s Cabinet. While the musicians played, Fisher recorded the tracks on his fully functional one-hundred-year old wax cylinder. In this video, Fisher discusses the history and science behind wax cylinder recording technology.

This concert is part of The Chipstone Foundation’s occasional Salon series held in Mrs. M.—’s Cabinet. To learn more about Mrs. M.— and discover details on future engagements in her Cabinet, please visit Mrs. M.-—’s Cabinet. Video by Ted Brusubardis.
