Dette lyd-dokument er et vemodigt blik tilbage til de gode gamle tider på Hald. Bendt Trudsø var regelmæssig gæst på Internationalt Studentercenter Hald. Oplæsning af Den lille Pige med Svovlstikkerne var et fast programpunkt ved nytårsaftenshøjtidelighederne i Hald’s teatersal. Optagelsen er fra nytårsaften 1962. Bendt Trudsø plejede også at oplæse Klokken, H.C. Andersen’s mest mystiske eventyr, hvis mening videnskaben ikke har kunnet afsløre. Han så i dette eventyr »die Suche nach der Wahrheit«. Klokken, Keiserens nye Klæder og Svinedrengen blev optaget nytårsdag 1963.
Bendt Trudsø, født den 2. august 1916, var amanuensis ved Købehavns Universitet. Han døde - alt for tidligt - den 4. maj 1966. Studentercentret Hald blev åbnet 1953 og blev nedlagt 1974.

Den lille Pige med Svovlstikkerne was recorded live on 31 December 1962 in the theater hall of the International Studentcenter Hald. The other fairy tales were recorded the next day, 1 January 1963 in the same room. Bendt Trudsø read Klokken two times. I had to make only one cut from take 1 to take 2. The last two fairy tales were recorded only once.
I used 2 dynamic microphones and a Revox E36 half-track stereo vacuum tube tape recorder with magic eye recording level indicator. Agfa long-playing tape was used, the tape speed was 7.5 ips (19 cm/s).
The glossy, i.e. non back-coated tape was very difficult to handle, especially on a studio tape recorder. Therefore I made, some 20 years after the recording, a copy of the original tape in a studio of Radio Bremen, equipped with AEG Telefunken M15 tape machines. Copying was done at double speed to eliminate tape hiss, i.e. noise above 10 KHz. BASF LGR 50, a back-coated professional tape was used for the copy.
A few years later, the tape was digitized and burned onto CD by recording engineer Erik Sikkema in his studio in Holland.
Finally, in 2011, my son Arvin converted the CD to MP3 on his Linux computer in Nürnberg.
I used an Exakta SLR with a ZEISS 50mm 1:1.4 lens (Hald Hovedgård 1968: a Rolleiflex) and Agfacolor CT18 reversal film. In 2011, I had the photographs scanned at a photo lab in Bremen. They were edited with Gimp and scaled down. The CT18 was, despite its low sensitivity (18 DIN = 50 ASA), a grainy film of moderate sharpness, not allowing for larger, more detailed images. The medium format photo Hald Hovedgård 1968 is of higher resolution, here a large view.
The 2010 photo of the building was taken with my Nikon D700 and a Nikkor 24-70mm 1:2.8 lens.
