Norwegian company Elire Management Group has taken the idea of wanting to forever preserve our most treasured music to a whole new level: by making a time capsule full of music and burying it for 1,000 years. You heard that right! How will they store the music though? The company will take master-quality digital copies of the music that they want to include in the vault (Global Music Vault) and store them away in the specially built capsules.
Their reason for this is that they stated most digital storage mediums have a limited lifetime and hardware, software and file formats become obsolete as time goes on. Their solution to this has been to create a revolutionary type of technology that will, according to their website, be unveiled to the world soon. The technology will be built to keep these master-quality digital copies of the songs they put in safe for over 1,000 years no matter how much technology changes from now to then. They have also said that the stored data can withstand extreme electromagnetic exposure, and will also survive disasters such as apocalypses and nuclear explosions.
