Morgan Morel

Staff
Preservation Director

Morgan Oscar Morel is the Manager of BAVC's Preservation Department. He works to preserve the artistic heritage and cultural memory held on obsolete video media. He is most interested in preserving media created by underrepresented communities for community access programming in the mid-70s. This work can be challenging to digitize, but Morgan knows the ins and outs of video signals, VTRs, tape formats, and digital preservation. He has spoken at many archival conferences, and taught workshops on audiovisual digitization and digital preservation. When not at work he can be found meditating to SMPTE bars and tone, contemplating the relationship between earth metals and video signals, and making abstract electronic music. His go-to karaoke tunes are House of the Rising Sun by the Animals and Thinkin Bout You by Frank Ocean.
