quote [ "Conserve the sound" is an online archive for disappearing sounds.
The sounds of a dial telephone, a walkman, an analog typewriter, a payphone, a 56k modem, a nuclear power plant or even a cell phone keypad are already partially gone or are just disappearing from daily life. Accompanying people come
