It’s early, still in bed. Little fingertips tickling your arm. A tender whisper. Then another, more demanding. A tiny finger taps the tip of your nose. With eyes still closed you smile, and it triggers that endearing giggle. Is there a better way to wake up?
As the time passes by, our beloved sound memories fade and turn to indistinct echoes, no matter how hard we try to recall them. We believe that these sounds deserve to be heard and passed on to people after us. That way they are remembered and safe forever.
Let us introduce you to Soundlocket® – the world’s first self-powered sound memory. Rather than bringing life to yet another electronic device doomed to cease to function and be disposed in a few years, we wanted to create something that lasts at least a hundred years. Something that you treasure as much for its meaning as for its appearance.
Soundlocket® is a piece that was created to let you re-live your precious sounds and keep the memory safe for generations to come.
If a tree falls in the forest with no one to hear it fall, does it make a sound? – A question that people have been pondering for centuries.
When we take a scientific point of view and think of sounds as vibrations that trail through the air or another medium, the answer to the question would be yes.
The waves left a salty taste on your lips. The soft wind playing with your hair when you rested in mother’s arms. The distant screams of the seagulls following the returning fishermen’s boats. Let’s listen, until it’s time to go back.
