This e.p. of experimental techno/electronica uses very early voice recordings that I recently came across at FirstSounds.org Tracks one and two use voice recordings made by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville in 1860 - track one samples a section of a voice test and turns Scott's voice into a spectral choir. Track two uses a re-processed recording of Scott singing the French folksong 'Au Clair de la Lune'. When Scott's recordings were made in 1860 there was no way of reproducing them as sound and it is only recently that FirstSounds.org made these recordings available in audible form using virtual stylus technology. www.firstsounds.org/sounds/scott.php Track three includes loops of 3 experimental voice recordings from the Volta Laboratory (1880-85) www.firstsounds.org/sounds/volta/ The track titles and e.p. name are from a novel published in 1860. Many thanks to FirstSounds.org for their work and for making these recordings available under a Creative Commons license.
