The 9/11 tapes: The story in the air

2011 marked the 10-year anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C. Who better to provide a comprehensive, multimedia memorial than the New York Times? In this interactive feature, they present a well edited, visually engaging audio presentation of audio from the Federal Aviation Administration (F.A.A.), North American Aerospace Defense Command (Norad) and American Airlines on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. Although at face value, it’s just an audio clip and transcript. But, every time I listen to this presentation, I have a physical reaction. My heart races. My stomach turns. And I am instantly transported back to the morning I watched this horrific story unfold on television.

This is an amazing example of the innovative ways in which audio can come alive in your mind’s eye.
