07 Nadja Wallaszkowits (Part 1) | Vienna Phonogram Archive: The Role of Scientific Sound Archive in Academic Research Sonic Entanglements Podcast

In 2018, I interviewed Dr. Nadja Wallaszkowits, head of the audio department at the Sound Archive of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna. Nadja is responsible for developing customized audio technologies for field recordings, as well as in audio restoration, re-recording and digital archiving. Her customized equipment and operation procedures became the standard in many other sound archives in the world. In this first segment of a two-part episode, Nadja lucidly elaborates on the specific role that a scientific sound archive plays for the scholarly community. She also explains the technological support that her institute provides for researchers.    Dr. Nadja Wallaszkovits managed the audio department as a specialist for audio restoration, re-recording and digital archiving and is consultant for archival technology for various institutions internationally. Dr. Wallaszkovits is Audio Engineering Society (AES) President Elect, Vice Chair of the Technical Committee of the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA), and a member of the IASA Training & Education Committee. Since 2020, she was appointed Professor of Conservation and Restoration of New Media and Digital Information at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design.   Sonic Entanglements is hosted and produced by meLê yamomo. Thijs van den Geest is our sound engineer and sound editor, and Jean Barcena is our publicity manager. Our theme music is created by Markus Hoogervorst.  For more information, visit www.sonic-entanglements.com.
