This audio project, made in GarageBand and using an Olympus LS-100 from Gelardin for interviews, centers around the idea of narrative gaps in family history -- in this case, of unknown stories attributed to the Vietnam War. Jennifer Nguyen interviewed several Vietnamese Americans about the silence gaps in their respective families and how it may have affected the way they see and write about the world.

The purpose of this project was to explore some of the challenges and techniques associated with recording the sound of the rear-facing French horn. In this fantasia, I pieced together excerpts of my playing with the horn miked close to the bell, more distantly in the hall, and in the midst of the orchestra. The voice of the conductor is used throughout the mix as a commentary on the art of balancing symphonic sounds from a podium, which parallels what I learned about balancing sound from my seat as simultaneous musician and recording artist.

The Georgetown University Forum is a half-hour interview program with Georgetown faculty members. It has existed in one form or another since the 1940s. In the 1950s it was even briefly a television program! For thirty years it was recorded at WAMU in Tenleytown, with Lillian Brown as its host. Carole Sargent took over as host in 2009, and moved production to the Gelardin New Media Center in 2010. It is available as free content for NPR member stations and Armed Forces Radio.

Place is not mere geography. It is a cerebral and emotional blend of associations, an awareness that is part physical, part science, and part history, culture and social memory. Place is a way of understanding the world and more. Can the internet host a "place?" If so, how and why?
