Stuff to share from the interwebs. All related to music making, sound design, audio production.

  • The Museum of Endangered Sounds: Imagine a world where we never again hear the symphonic startup of a Windows 95 machine. Imagine generations of children unacquainted with the chattering of angels lodged deep within the recesses of an old cathode ray tube TV …

And (unsurprisingly) that turned out to be not that easy.
