Sonic Futures: Sound Postcard player

Sonic Futures: Sound Postcard player

A collaborative project with sound artist Aleksander Kolkowski to create a website and web-based record player as a part of the Science and Media Museum’s Sonic Futures exhibition. Sound postcards were popular in the early 1900s and consisted of a postcard accompanied by a small phonograph (or gramophone) record. The website included this web-based record player for playing a selection of newly commissioned sound posts remotely.
