Don't miss the excellent work of the historian searcher Patrick Feaster 
specialist in the history, culture, and preservation of early sound media. 

This research happened within the scope of FirstSounds
showing us early wax records (in between 1881 and 1885) of the Volta Laboratory,
as well make us listen the sound contents of these experimental sound recordings preserved 
in the collections of the National Museum of American History.
