‘Museum Of Endangered Sounds’ ensures sounds from technology’s past are not forgotten
These are the questions which led US-based Brendan Chilcutt into curating the Museum of Endangered Sounds.
Chilcutt’s online archive features sounds from old technologies, such as the ringing of old Nokia mobile phone, loading of VCRs, connecting 56K modems and gameplay from Number Munchers!
According to Chilcutt:
“It’s a way to preserve the sounds made famous by my favorite old technologies and electronics equipment.”
He plans to collect more data by the year 2015, and spend the next seven years developing proper markup language to reinterpret the sounds as binary compositions—to preserve them for future generations.
Thank you Brendan Chilcutt. Thank you.
