Edison Moon is based on digital transfers of wax cylinder recordings originally recorded for Edison Records in the early Twentieth Century. The raw 24-bit transfers were made and distributed as public domain by the Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project at University of California, Santa Barbara Library.
