The Sonic Memorial ProjectShortly after
The Sonic Memorial ProjectShortly after September 11, NPR’s Lost & Found Sound brought together independent radio producers, new media producers, artists, historians, and listeners from across the country to collect and preserve ‘sound memories’ of the World Trade Center, its neighborhood, and the events of 9/11.
We set up the Sonic Memorial Phone Line at 877-894-8500 for you to leave your stories, recordings, and audio artifacts, both personal and historic. Hundreds of you called with testimonies and remembrances, music, and small fragments of sound.
Also see NPR 9-11-02 REflections for more really great coverage of the anniversary of 9/11
Your stories have been woven into radio broadcasts on NPR. And now, they are a part of a living archive and a new kind of listening experience called ‘The Sonic Browser.’
