“This free digital release expands upon INFREQUENCY’s recent 2xCD compilation Au Clair De La Lune with an open call made for artists to submit their own interpretations of an 1860 recording by Édouard-Léon Scott. This digital-only release from INFREQUENCY collects together nine exceptional submissions as high quality Mp3s.
The original recording was made by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville on April 9, 1860 using his own invention, the phonautograph, and consists of a series of scratches on a roll of blackened paper. Scott had never developed a way to play back his recordings and they went unheard for 148 years. In 2008, scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory converted the thin lines back into audio, allowing us to hear a woman singing a segment of the folk song Au Clair De La Lune“.
The 2xCD compilation, Au Clair De La Lune, is available from INFREQUENCY.ORG and features many acclaimed artists such as Steve Roden, Stephen Vitiello & Molly Berg, Bernhard Günter and Christophe Charles.
