‘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!
»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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
