An Online Museum Is Preserving Endangered Sounds for Future Generations

Conserve the Sound bills itself as “an online museum for vanishing and endangered sound,” and it’s exactly what the world needs right now. Daniel Chun and Jan Derksen are the brains behind the operation, and they’re committed to preserving sounds that are quickly disappearing from our everyday lives.

Some examples include a rotary phone, typewriter keys, and the buzzing sound of a vintage intercom.

Remember the vintage viewfinders you used to play with as kids? That sound is cataloged by Conserve the Sound as well.

Be sure to browse through the online museum’s website. I guarantee there’s something on there to make everyone feel like an old timer. What a great idea!
