Sonic Futures: Sound Postcard player and website

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 documents the history of this novel recording technology along with the making of some recently commissioned examples and includes a web-based record player for playing them.

Visit the Sound Postcards website to see (and listen to!) the new postcards.
