Recorded Sound: An Introduction

An early recording studio.

In this series of blog posts we will explore the history of sound recording, and how the technological advances in this area have affected the music industry. From before Edison’s phonograph to today’s modern recording studios, it would be impossible to discuss every advance and its impact on music. I’ve come up with a few general topics that I feel give a nice overview of this subject, and might spark some conversation and further exploration into recording and the music being recorded.

New posts will be up on Monday mornings. Next Monday, we will start with the breakthroughs that inspired Edison’s famous phonograph, and listen to some very eerie recordings that were never meant to be heard.
