One of the problems in the study of recordings is that knowledge is dispersed among people who never normally talk to one another. For this reason CHARM hosted a series of residential symposia bringing together musicologists, performers, producers, recording engineers, collectors, archivists, sociologists, and media theorists, among others, to address specific topics in the study of recordings; the symposia embraced classical, popular, and world musical traditions. Other acitivities included a range of seminars and study days in addition to an international conference.
