Equipment Graveyard - new KTQ Archives blog on "lost" equipment

In a new blog at the Kartemquin Archives Project, lead archivist Carolyn Faber shares the story of an unusual discovery: an Auricon Sound-On-Film Recording Amplifier.

The vintage optical sound equipment, found in a box by fellow KTQ archivist Lyra Hill, was originally purchased as the accompaniment to our beloved "Camera #1", but discarded as Gordon Quinn and friends hacked the camera and custom-modified it to fit their own crystal-synch sound set-up (watch the video below for an explanation). The Auricon was thus never even used once for its intended purpose; as Gordon comments in Carolyn's blog, "It's junk."
