  Sonic Memorial Project  
The most widely aired 9/11 anniversary program broadcast on public radio nationwide,
The Sonic Memorial Project
was created by a unique national collaboration involving The Kitchen Sisters/Lost & Found Sound, independent radio producers, NPR, artists, musicians, archivists, journalists, historians, web designers, and public radio listeners who came together in the wake of the September 11th attacks to chronicle and preserve the sounds and stories of the World Trade Center and this profound event in the history of the country.  

Through NPR’s All Things Considered, The Sonic Memorial Project set up a phone line asking listeners to call in with their stories and audio artifacts. Hundreds of people called in with their sound and messages creating a remarkable archive of personal recordings and remembrances. From this material and hundreds of hours of interviews and archival recordings gathered by producers around the country, the Sonic Memorial Special was crafted.

This Sonic Memorial was produced by The Kitchen Sisters, Jay Allison, Ben Shapiro, Jamie York & Laura Folger and the Sonic Memorial team including Joe Richman, Elinoar Astrinsky, Elana Berkowitz, and Picture Projects.

  Soundwalk – Audio Walking Tour  
  The Kitchen Sisters and Soundwalk teamed up in September 2004 to craft a 60-minute audio walking tour, narrated by writer Paul Auster, capturing the life and history of the World Trade Center and the surrounding neighborhood.  A rich collection of phone messages and interviews to live music recordings and historic audio. Sonic Memorial Soundwalk was nominated for the 2005 Audie Award for Best Original work.
