Music, the Universal and Personal Medium Presented by member John Krause
John's presentation will cover how sound and music have come to us in the past, how they are in the present, and perhaps what they will be in the future. The computer, Apple or otherwise, is the home of the current video and sound system. Techniques and available services will make for smooth transition from your desktop to your ears.
You will learn how to spend your dollars wisely for future enjoyment. John's agenda is:
1. History of Recorded Sound and Music: From 1901 and RCA wax blanks to record sound to today with CD, DVD and music files stored on Hard drives, iPods, iPads, etc.
