First audio recordings on Edison cylinders

Utah Valley University

Utah Valley University (UVU) is a public university in Orem, Utah, that is engaged in digital preservation education and activities. UVU have done a project to restore, transcribe and digitally preserved the first audio recordings made on Edison cylinders. These recordings include classic tunes such as Goodbye Boys, It’s A Long, Long Way To Tipperary, Kiss Me My Honey Kiss Me, among many others. Digitally preserving these items has been made possible through the unique qualities of piqlFilm, allowing audio to be stored for an unlimited time. Now these treasures are stored in AWA for eternity.
