Go back to the nineteenth century to see the first recordings of sound made by Edison and Berliner. Campbell Bickerstaff, curator of the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia, shows students some of the earliest technology used to record sound and explains how the first phonographs worked. He continues through the ages to define electromagnetic recordings, high fidelity sound, and the new digital technology. As viewers see the history of recording, they will understand how sound travels and is created, as well as how the industry of sound recording will continue to expand.
