From Belfer’s shelves to the nation’s airwaves

Join producer Jim O’Connor and Newhouse alum Brett Barry, the voice of Sound Beat, for a behind the scenes look at Sound Beat. The presentation will take place in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons on the first floor of Bird Library on Thursday, November 3 at 3:00 p.m.

From selection of recordings, to script writing, recording, and distribution, the event will provide an overview of the creation of an episode – from Belfer’s shelves to the nation’s airwaves.

Sound Beat is a daily, 90 second show highlighting the holdings of the Belfer Audio Archive. The Belfer is part of the Syracuse University Library, and with over half a million recordings, is one of the largest sound archives in the United States. Each Sound Beat episode focuses on one particular recording from the Archive, and provides a back story detailing its place in recording history.
