11:06 The Wire – Hallo Hallo (Part 1 of 8)
The Wire is an eight-part multi award winning Canadian Broadcasting Corporation series looks at the impact of electricity on music. It incorporates interviews, music and sound in an innovative way, creating a unique radio experience that's somewhere between a documentary, a remix and a music show.
In the first episode hear how the arrival of public electricity on the eve of the 20th century transformed virtually every aspect of daily life - not least of all, the experience of music. We begin our journey on The Wire with a reflection on how it has changed the way we think of the human voice, the way we communicate sound to large groups of people, and the way we now take for granted that sound is something that can be preserved, stored and heard again.
