The Memorial to Forgotten Sounds

By Luis, Adriaan, Karla & Jenny

‘The Memorial to Forgotten Sounds project at NIME 2017 in Copenhagen explores alternative ways to improve online archival practices and the preservation of media culture through post-digital mnemonic strategies.

The project consists of a pop-up installation designed specifically for NIME 2017 where we showcase and offer sound souvenirs of 5 sound pieces from past editions of NIME.

These pieces were turned from immaterial digital files into material souvenirs that visitors can acquire by helping to preserve them through an act of remembering.
