Edouard-Léon Scott de Martinville invented sound recording twenty years before Thomas Edison re-invented it. But his phonautograph is only one of his many accomplishments. Our upcoming release, Edouard-Léon Scott de Martinville, Inventor of Sound Recording: A Bicentennial Tribute, tells his story in depth. This extensively illustrated 48-page softcover book presents new research on Scott and his role as the father of sound recording. Included is a 33-1/3 flexi disc with phonautograms not only by Scott, but also by famous inventors who were inspired by him and his invention: Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison and Emile Berliner. (A link to stream or download the audio is included as well.) A Bicentennial Tribute will be released May 2.
