“HISTORY OF THE TYPEWRITER”


The History of the Typewriter recited by Michael Winslow (2009)
Event in collaboration with La Nuit Blanche de Metz.

HD-Film (RED) on BluRay (20’52)
First, the original sounds of 62 typewriters of different times, countries and technologies
were recorded.

order, tracing a temporary journey through almost 100 years of history and creating this
way an homage to the sound qualities of the typewriter and its former presence in the
office.
