A short, fun history of noise from TheAtlantic. Notably missing: your clog dancing upstairs neighbor.
It can sometimes feel like the world is very noisy—from planes arcing loudly through the sky to the unceasing buzz of your cellphone. But it wasn’t always this way. There weren’t always sounds being transmitted through the air, and there weren’t always animals and humans around to make sounds. And there certainly weren’t always technologies around to record sounds, in basements and fancy studios and subway cars.
Sound has a history, from the first sound ever, to the first sound heard by an animal, to the first recorded by a human being.
