It has long been known that opera singers played a role in the early recording industry. "Singing Machines: Opera and Early Sound Recording" shows that opera was in fact a repeated point of reference for those involved with the technology of sound recording, from the invention of the phonograph in 1877 to the large-scale adoption of recording as a medium of entertainment around 1907. The grant will support research and writing during the summer of 2020.
