Everything that has been recorded over the past 90 years or so is grist for the current musical mill, including the methods used in the recording. A new project, called the 78 Project, is going back to the portable straight-to-laquer, one-take record recording device like those used by Alan Lomax, back when he was traveling the South, recording then-unknown musicians like Leadbelly, the Carter Family and more. Herewith then, a teaser, shot in the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens (Children’s Garden), September 2011 and featuring Dawn Landes.
