The history of recorded sound in the 20th century addresses a basic question: how do technology and culture interact? Since the first sound recordings of the 1870's, sound recording technologies have had a dramatic effect on the way people think about sound, music, noise, and silence. In the 20th century, many new styles of music emerged — Jazz, Rock and Roll, Soul and Funk, Punk and Metal, Reggae, Disco, Rap, Techno and Electronica — styles which would have been impossible without microphones and amplified sound, radio, magnetic tape, the electric guitar, the synthesizer, vinyl records, etc. These technologies not only influenced the way that music sounded, they also helped to change the very definition of our concepts of music, entertainment and culture.
