The AUDMCRS Underground Dance Music Collection of Recorded Sound - “It is said that the music we hear as teenagers is, and will always be, the most important music for the rest of our lives. For me this music is techno, the cheap, voiceless machine-age disco that became popular in the clubs of Chicago in the late ’80s and from there quickly spread around the globe… ‘Failure by chemical degradation of a vinyl disc in ordinary library environments should not occur in less than a century,’ states Pickett and Lemcoe’s 1959 Library of Congress study, Preservation and Storage of Sound Recordings. In other words, in a world where the hard drive on your current computer might last five years, a 1990 Joey Beltram Energy Flash 12 inch, if stored properly, will last 100. Techno, a music often concerned with imagery of the future, actually has a chance of making it there - without any active intervention or migration - all because it was stored on a medium of the past.”
