WE DO IT
STORYTELLER WILL ARRIVE at your home, office, or local pubany
place that provides a suitable and comfortable recording environment.
Our recording device is the much-lauded Zoom
H4 Digital Field Recorder. The Zooms innovative stereo microphone
allows for the most modern and inexpensive way to record quality interviews
in the MP3 format.
the interview, we take the recording and burn you personalized CDson
the spot. Suddenly, you have what you had always thought about
having: a recording of a friend, family or accomplice (from which you
can make copies!). It may sound great a few months later, but just think
about how it will sound to you and your descendants five, ten and even
fifty years later.
STORYTELLER believes in supporting legacies. Your subjects
oral history is your history, too. Get them telling their story.
WE CAN LEAD THE interview, or you can lead the interview (sometimes
an outsider is a better person to interview a subject).
Other times, the rapport a person has with a subject puts them in a
better position to ask the questions. And your subject neednt
be an English speaker. After we set up the recording device, all a Storyteller
needs to do is tell their story. We simply record it.
WHY AN AUDIO RECORDING?
IN THE TRADITION OF the American folklorist John
Lomax and family, and the likes of John
Peabody Harrington of the Smithsonian Institute, STORYTELLER believes
that concentrating on the spoken word aspect of peoples stories
allows the listener to evade the distraction of video-taped talking
heads and images (thats why there is an ear in our logo).
Not that were image-phobic: STORYTELLER also archives photos,
letters, films and video tapes.
