Forgotten Sounds

Typewriters, steam engines and foundries - these forgotten sounds take us back in time.

The music of typewriters, steam engines, foundries and looms. These previously-familiar, now long-forgotten sounds transport us back in time, evoking memories, and creating a strangely meditative effect.

Composer Iain Chambers creates a radiophonic sequence from the huge recording archive of the pan-EU Sounds of Changes project, a collaboration between 6 major European museums to document the huge change within our acoustic landscape.
