The History of the Typewriter recited by Michael Winslow

May 26th, 2010

“The History of the Typewriter recited by Michael Winslow” is a 21 minutes long film made by Ignacio Uriarte.

First he recorded the original sounds of 62 typewriters of different times, countries and technologies. Then, the actor Michael Winslow reproduced a selection of these sounds in chronolgical order, tracing a temporary journey through almost 100 years of history and creating this way an homage to the sound qualities of the typewriter and its former presence in the office.

It sounds amazing, you can see the quicktime version here. I bet he can do those modem dial-in sounds too. Remember those?
