Recording is a process of capturing data or translating information to a format stored on a storage medium often referred to as a record.

Historical records of events have been made for thousands of years in one form or another. Amongst the earliest are cave painting, runic alphabets and ideograms. Technology continues to provide and expand means for human beings to represent, record and express their thoughts, feelings and experiences.

Etymology

From Middle English recorden (“to repeat, to report”), from Old French recorder (“to get by heart”), from Latin recordārī, present active infinitive of recordor (“remember, call to mind”), from re- (“back, again”) + cor (“heart; mind”).
