* 1888, the year of the death of the composer Charles-Valentin Alkan (Chopin’s friend and neighbour) is also the year of the earliest surviving recording of music and earliest recorded film.

 

 

Combined on this video is the earliest surviving recording of music (a live performance of Handel’s oratorio Israel in Egypt conducted by Sir August Manns, recorded by Edison engineer George E. Gouraud at Crystal Palace, London, England, 29th June 1888) and the earliest surviving recorded film (shot by Louis Aimé Augustin Le Prince in Leeds, England in October 1888): Roundhay Garden Scene (filmed 14 October 1888) and Traffic Crossing Leeds Bridge (filmed late October 1888). In the Roundhay Garden Scene (filmed in the garden of the Whitley family home in Oakwood Grange Road, Roundhay, Leeds, England) are the following people (from the left at beginning of sequence): Adolphe Le Prince (the film maker’s son), Miss Harriet Hartley, Mrs. Sarah Whitley, (the film maker’s mother-in-law), and Joseph Whitley (the film maker’s business partner). The original film was shot at 12 frames per second and lasts 2 seconds. Traffic Crossing Leeds Bridge was filmed in Leeds, England in late October 1888, at 20 frames per second.

  1. Thought to be the oldest surviving recording of Thomas Edison’s voice, made in October 1888 he describes an imagined trip “around the world on the phonograph,” by Cunard steamer from New York City to Liverpool, through Europe and Asia, noting specific ships, railroads, cities, and points of interest en route. In the following decades Edison’s phonograph invention would itself spread “around the world”.

  3. I’m sure you all remember trying your first video recorders and how we all just kind of did something dumb and random and unplanned to test it out, and over time turned into a pro… just like how far the “art” has come in the past 138 years. Was fun to see

  4. Filmed during the same time as the Jack the Ripper slayings in Britain…
    Filmed just a bit over 20 years after the American Civil War, Lincoln’s assassination and the abolishing of slavery in America….
    Filmed just a few years before the infamous Lizzie Borden murders…
    Filmed barely 20 years before the Titanic sinking and World War I…
