The dawning of the Technossance occurred with the invention of the record player. It was a new dawning, unlike any other experienced. Thomas Edison invented the phonograph in 1877. It inscribed audio to tinfoil wrapped along a cardboard cylinder for subsequent playback. This device recorded sound and also played sound. From the start, some of the greatest recordings, from massive hits to underappreciated deep cuts.
