Cool! The museum of forgotten sounds.

Here’s a sample. For example, if you’re of a certain age, you’ll be familiar with the squawks of a dial-up modem connecting with a host. Just as the music of the past provides a window on how the world used to work, so do once-ubiquitous sounds that have been squeezed out of existence by technology and obsolescence. And then there’s the sound of re-spooling the loose tape in a cassette using a pencil. Or the warble of a fax machine. These sounds tell us what the world used to be like for everyday people. Museums collect and protect all kinds of physical artefacts. ; Damn, I just got all weirdly nostalgic…

CONSERVE THE SOUND – Teaser from CHUNDERKSEN on Vimeo. Or the sound of a rotary dial phone made. This is where an online museum called Conserve the Sound comes in. This online museum is different in that it looks preserve forgotten sounds. If you’re under 25, it’s possible you’ve never heard the clack of a typewriter.
Cool! The museum of forgotten sounds.
