EXCERPTS >|< Dickson Experimental Sound Film (ca 1894)
A single animated GIF excerpted from Dickson Experimental Sound Film (ca 1894). This short film was a test for Edison’s “Kinetophone” project, the first attempt in history to record sound and moving image in synchronization. This was an experiment by William Dickson to put sound and film together either in 1894 or 1895. Unfortunately, this experiment failed because they didn’t understand synchronization of sound and film. The large cone on the left hand side of the frame is the “microphone” for the wax cylinder recorder (off-camera). The Library of Congress had the film. The wax cylinder soundtrack, however, was believed lost for many years. Tantalizingly, a broken cylinder labeled “Violin by WKL Dickson with Kineto” was catalogued in the 1964 inventory at the Edison National Historic Site. In 1998, Patrick Loughney, curator of Film and Television at the Library of Congress, retrieved the cylinder and had it repaired and re-recorded at the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archive of Recorded Sound, Lincoln Center, New York. Since the Library did not possess the necessary synchronizing technology, Loughney - at the suggestion of producer Rick Schmidlin - sent multi-Oscar winner Walter Murch a videotape of the 17 seconds of film and an audiocassette of 3 minutes and 20 seconds of sound with a request to marry the two. By digitizing the media and using digital editing software, Murch was able to synchronize them and complete the failed experiment 105 years later. This 35mm film was generously made available to the Internet Archive by Walter Murch and Sean Cullen.

Una serie di GIF estratte da Dickson Experimental Sound Film, del 1984 circa. Questo breve filmato è un test relativo al progetto ‘Kinetophone’ di T.A. Edison, ossia il primo tentativo nella storia di registrare suoni e immagini simultaneamente. Nello specifico, queste immagini risalgono all’esperimento tentato da William Dickinson tra il 1894 e il 1895. Il grande cono sulla sinistra dell’immagine è il ‘microfono’ per il registratore cilindrico in cera, che è fuori dall’inquadratura. Sfortunamenente l’esperimento fallì perchè non era stata ancora sufficientemente compresa la sincronizzazione tra audio e video.Mentre la pellicola era custodita negli archivi della LiIbrary of Congress, per lungo tempo si è pensato che la colonna sonora su cilindro di cera fosse andata perduta. Invece, all’Edison National Historic Site nel 1964 viene inventariato un cilindro rotto etichettato “Violin by WKL Dickson with Kineto”. Nel 1998 il cilindro viene riparato da Patrick Loughney, curator of Film and Television at the Library of Congress. La colonna sonora viene quindi nuovamente registrata presso il Rodgers and Hammerstein Archive of Recorded Sound, Lincoln Center, New York. Poichè la Library of Congress non era in possesso delle tecnologie necessarie per la sincronizzazione, Loughney invia al pluripremiato vincitore di Oscar Walter Murch una videocassetta con 17 secondi di film e un’audiocassetta con 3 minuti e 20 secondi di audio. Una volta digitalizzati i due media e grazie all’ausilio di particolari software, Murch è stato in grado di completare l’esperimento fallito a 105 anni di distanza. Questo film da 35mm è stato generosamente messo a disposizione di Internet Archive da Walter Murch and Sean Cullen.
