[first paragraph] Recent prehistorians of sound recording have recovered an exotic European fantasy of the early 1630s. A pamphlet called "Le courrier veritable" told Parisians of a strange sponte discovered by a Captain Vosterloch on a voyage to the South Seas. Local people used these sponges to communicate across long distances: a message spoken into one of them would be exactly replayed whenthe recipient squeezed it appropriately (Marty 1981, 10; Levin 1995; Draaisma 2000, 85-86).
