“R.H. Wissell’s Lost Recordings” is an experimental record project that examines Wissell’s use of musical theory to explore and advance his time travel research.
A collective of “scientific enthusiasts” or The Society for the Preservation of Time Travel Studies presents this volume of Wissell’s scientific research (recordings) to foster discussion about whether there is indeed a connection between music and time travel. Their examination of his work centers on the two very different styles of music presented on the record, especially curious because the second track on side A contains methods of sound making that would not have been possible for Wissell to create in 1910. Also, Wissell’s own voice recordings (accompanying the music on side B) highlight the connections he’s made between the two.
This project is a collaboration between Belle & Wissell and DCC Experience, with an array of vital contributors. “R.H. Wissell’s Lost Recordings” is part of the series “The Story of Belle and Wissell®” from Belle & Wissell Editions.
