Albany Voiceprints

A Voiceprint is an engaging way to bring an oral history story to life.
Experience Historical Albany through this unique collection of Voiceprints.
These stories feature local people sharing their experiences of living within the Albany community.
A Voiceprint relies primarily on a strong oral narrative sympathetically and subtly supported by historical imagery (both photos and video) and music to become a self-sustained story.
