One of the biggest changes for the music industry is the shift from publishing music on CDs, to downloadable music files. There are still artists who prefer their music to be available on a tangible medium, even one as old as vinyl. In Iowa the two year old label Maximum Ames Records publishes all of its titles on vinyl, including H.D. Harmsen's first album which is out this week. Dustin Harmsen has been in bands since he was a teenager, but this is his first solo collection. Chris Ford, co-founder of Maximum Ames Records and leader of the band Christopher the Conquered, produced "Papoose" in an all analog studio. Both Ford and Harmsen say they value listening to full length collections from vinyl.
This video piece is based my radio story that aired during Iowa Public Radio's broadcast of All Things Considered and Morning Edition. All music excerpts are from the 12 inch vinyl test pressing of H.D. Harmsen's "Papoose", and while the interviews were recorded on a digital audio recorder, the audio final audio mix in this video piece was mastered to a two track analog tape (Scotch 806). The video was shot with a Canon T3i DSLR camera and edited with Sony's Vegas Movie Studio 11. Before going to the analog tape, the audio mix and processing was all digital through Adobe Audition.
