Season of Sound now open


Take the time to explore sound

Published date:
Dive into the British Library sound archive with our free exhibition, Listen: 140 Years of Recorded Sound. We tell a story of sound recording and explore the importance of sound in capturing history, how radio transformed society in the 20th century and how the way we listen has changed as new technologies have emerged and old ones become obsolete. Our Season of Sound continues with events including David Attenborough, Lates, The Radiophonic Workshop at 60, Evelyn Glennie, Classic Album Sundays, David Toop, Audio Adventures, Martyn Ware, with more to be announced.
