There is a story in The Golden Legend about Saint Sebastian miraculously giving a mute woman, Zoe, her voice back. I’ve thought about it, and decided to make Sebastian recording the song of nightingales on a wax cylinder recording to give to Zoe.
Here is the first wax cylinder recording I heard. They Might Be Giants “I Can Hear You.” When I heard about it I wanted to look for pictures of the process. This picture is loosely based on several of the examples I found of the wax cylinder recording process.
