    David Lemieux, Archivist, Grateful Dead

    Title: Archiving the Grateful Dead Audiovisual Collection

    The Grateful Deadís audiovisual collection consists of approximately
    15,000 audio tapes in all formats from 1965-2005, 3,000 video tapes in all
    formats from 1971-2005, and 250,000 feet of 16mm film. These are almost entirely
    live recordings, with some studio material mixed in. Since the end of the
    Grateful Deadís touring career in 1995, the band has kept its legacy alive by
    releasing live recordings, both on CD and DVD, drawn exclusively from this
    extensive archive. David Lemieux, who worked as the Grateful Deadís archivist
    and producer from 1999 to 2006 in Marin County, California, and still works
    closely with the band members and their record company, will discuss the bandís
    archiving philosophy and the processes in place to preserve this important
    collection.

    About the Speaker: Since 1999, David Lemieux has been working as the Grateful
    Deadís audiovisual archivist and producer. Prior to this, David worked at the BC
    Archives in Victoria as the audiovisual technician, and the National Archives of
    Canada, where he did an extensive internship in the film conservation division
    and worked on the development of a nitrate film storage facility. He received
    his MA in film archiving from the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England
    in 1999, as well as a BFA in film studies from Concordia University in Montreal,
    and a BA in history from Carleton University in Ottawa. He currently lives in
    Victoria, BC, with his cat, Zeus.


    Light refreshments will be served.

    Thanks for posting Rick!!!
    I might have to truck it from down here in Eugene OR to go an see David Lemieux speak. He definitely had one of the coolest jobs ever, and did a great job remastering all the music for the Dick's Picks series. Speaking of which its too bad Dick Latvala will not also be attending (RIP)

    Dang, that's a little far for me to make it, but I do have a question...

    I can understand the finale of the "Dick's Picks" series, but I have concerns about the "Road Trips" series. While the idea of a compilation set from specific tours is novel and fun, it's going to inevitably miss a lot of gems and prevent people from having high quality access to the rest of many shows. One example is Cape Cod from that tour. The Other One is a legendary monster and was left off of this set. One can only assume that by releasing a compilation set from this tour, they'll never release an official version of that amazing show.

    I will pass your question along to him when I see him.
