Audio technologies played a key role in the development of modern mass communication: from wax recording cylinders to the telephone and the radio up to cell phones and the internet. This exhibit explores many historic acoustic machines from our collection of Evanston history. Created to share art and ideas across time and distance, these inventions were revolutionary. How did these technologies get us where we are today and where will future developments take us?
