A Digital Museum Catalogs The World’s Endangered Analog Sounds
This website's mission is to keep nostalgic sounds of old technology from becoming extinct.
The Museum Of Endangered Sounds, created by Brendan Chilcutt in January 2012, is a repository of analog nostalgia. For anybody who remembers not being able to check their email because an important call was expected on the landline, Mr. Chilcutt’s mission to collect the sounds of obsolete technologies might be a welcome venture–or at least a fun distraction.
Visitors to the site can listen to a selection of aural memorabilia like the default ring on an old Nokia 3310, the dial-up reveille of a 56k modem, or Brian Eno’s classic 1994 composition: The six second Windows 95 Start-Up Sound.
