Long Distance Operator, The History of Communications Technology Told With a Remix of Iconic Sounds

Jed Oelbaum and Oliver Noble have created “Long Distance Operator,” a remix that illustrates the evolution of communications technologies using samples of iconic sounds. The song travels from the early days of pigeons and typewriters to pagers, cellphones, and dial-up internet and finally to smartphones and the internet as we know it with services like Facebook, Twitter, and Gmail.
