Album Notes
This is the raw, unique sound of one very rare computer music device. The music was written in 1987, using the AMPLE music language on an Acorn BBC Model B microcomputer driving a Hybrid Technology Music 500 peripheral. The original master tapes (compact cassettes!) were lo-fi to start with and are now basically unlistenable. To make this recording, I got the Music 500 and floppy disks out of storage and, with the help of a reconditioned BBC Micro from Retroclinic, managed to get a 96 kHz recording direct from the Music 500. No effects, other than Adaptive Limiting in Logic Pro, were added.
