Description:

In this post, students will learn about early recording history and hear recordings recovered from 1880s records. The recovered recordings are the Volta Laboratory Associates' early experiments at recording and even reproducing live sound. These recordings were made in Washington, D.C., by Alexander Graham Bell, his cousin Chichester Bell, and Charles Sumner Tainter. They experimented with reproduction and copying techniques for possible mass-consumption of their discs, and, unlike Edison's phonograph cylinders, the Volta records were durable enough to be played multiple times. This post is published on the Museum's "O Say Can You See?" blog.
