While most exhibitions are visual, this is an auditory deal which traces the history of sound as it stretches back to its origin in 1877. Follow a timeline of key events in the history of sound, with rare and unpublished recordings as well as a specially commissioned audio installation by composer Aleks Kolkowski. Find out how radio transformed the 20th century, listen to the wireless log of 16-year old Alfred Taylor from 1922 and enjoy playable stamps from Bhutan. The exhibition is part of the Season of Sound, celebrating the Library’s sound archives. The exhibition can be found in the entrance hall of the British Library.
