My dissertation project, “Participant Listeners: Home Taping and the Political Culture of Recording Technologies in the U.S.,” investigates the history of magnetic tape recording in relation to debates over aesthetic practice, copyright law, and the industrial organization of entertainment in the United States. From the 1950s, when reel-to-reel tape recorders entered the consumer market, to the late 1990s, when digital media began to supplant cassette tapes as the easiest way to reproduce recorded sounds, consumers’ use of magnetic tape provoked social and political conflicts over the value of recorded sounds and influenced changes within the structure of the recording industry.
