Work with Sounds
Work with Sounds is a cooperation between six museums in Europe, in Germany LWL-Industriemuseum, Dortmund participates.
"Work with Sounds is recording the endangered or disappearing sounds of industrial society - including sounds people try/tried to protect themselves from. During 1st September 2013 and 31st September 2015 we will record at least 600 sounds in their original settings. Every sound will also be documented: What and where is it? And how did we record it? We will be creating a soundscape of industrial Europe."
The above video shows the setting of text on a Linotype N-14 Machine, manufactured in Leningrad (Soviet Union) in 1968. The sound of the machine was recorded 2014 in the Printing Museum in Cieszyn (Poland).
