Postponed -Sound on Sound: Exploring the Evolution of Les Paul’s Pioneering Recording Techniques

April 4 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Exploring the Evolution of Les Paul’s Pioneering Recording Techniques on the Road to Multi-Track Recording

Postponed until Fall 2020

A lecture by Dr Sean McClowry

at Mahwah Museum

Dr Sean McClowry, professor of music at the College of St. Rose, will discuss Les Paul’s “sound on sound” methods.  While known as a pioneer in multi-track and multi-layering recording, Les Paul’s methods were constantly changing.  Each new method presented new advantages and challenges.  This talk will include live demonstrations, in an effort to unpack the genius at work as a recording artist and a pioneer in music technology, and also highlight the historic artifacts on display at the museum.

The program is free for Museum members, $5 for non-members.  Reservations are recommended; to reserve seats, contact programs@mahwahmuseum.org or call 201-512-0099.
