The Sonic Memorial Project is an open archive and an online audio installation of the history of The World Trade Center. We are continuing to collect stories, ambient sounds, voicemails, and archival recordings to tell the rich history of the twin towers, the neighborhood and the events of 9/11.

Led by NPR's Lost & Found Sound, The Sonic Memorial Project is a cross-media collaboration of more than 50 independent radio and new media producers, artists, historians, and people from around the world who have contributed personal and archival recordings. To date, we have gathered more than 1,000 contributions, many of which have been woven into feature stories by Lost & Found Sound and broadcast on NPR.

Please help us build this historical archive by calling the Sonic Memorial Phone Line (646-926-1357) or by uploading your sounds. will remain open to the public for years to come thanks to the generous support of the September 11 Digital Archive. is produced by Picture Projects and dotsperinch in collaboration with The Kitchen Sisters Productions and Lost & Found Sound.
