‘conserve the sound’ – listen to sounds made by vintage technology | #history #retro #retrotech

CTS (conserve the sound) is a collection of audio recordings of Sony walkmans, VHS decks, mechanical film shutters, actual typewriters, and the like. And yes that includes the sound made by opening a paper map! We all have our stories of yesteryear’s technology – CTS is the sounds we used to hear!

For example can you guess what this is:

(the answer will surprise you!)

»Conserve the sound« is an online museum for vanishing and endangered sounds. The sound of a dial telephone, a walkman, a analog typewriter, a pay phone, a 56k modem, a nuclear power plant or even a cell phone keypad are partially already gone or are about to disappear from our daily life.

Accompanying the archive people are interviewed and give an insight in to the world of disappearing sounds.

»Conserve the sound« is a project form CHUNDERKSEN and is funded
by the Film & Medienstiftung NRW, Germany.

Currently »Conserve the sound« is continuously extended.

We welcome suggestions in general, sound suggestions, stories,
anecdotes and of course collaborations.
