Oldest Recorded Sound Unearthed

A group of researchers has played what is thought to be the oldest recording of a human voice.


The recording predates Thomas Edison's invention of the phonograph (previously thought to have recorded the first sound) by 17 years. It captured about 10 seconds of the French folksong "Au Clair De La Lune" on April 9, 1860.

Now it has been archived online here.
The original "Au Clair De La Lune" can be heard here.

I was so excited about this. We enjoyed our beloved mp3s on a daily basis that we rarely think of "how did all this began?". Well, now we know.
