"Using modern technology, Patrick Feaster is on a mission to resurrect long-vanished voices and sounds--many of which were never intended to be revived. Over the past thousand years, countless images have been created to depict sound in forms that theoretically could be 'played' just as though they were modern sound recordings. Now, for the first time in history, this compilation uses innovative digital techniques to convert historic 'pictures of sound' dating back as far as the Middle Ages directly into meaningful audio. It contains the world's oldest known 'sound recordings' in the sense of sound vibrations automatically recorded out of the air ... In short, this isn't just another collection of historical audio--it redefines what 'historical audio' is." (Forced Exposure)
