A Small Computer Plays Some Samples Of Mozart’s Dice-Composition Music

Here’s a pretty great find of early mini computer music, released on vinyl in 1967. It was made by T.H. O’Beirne on the SOLIDAC computer that was produced and used at Glasgow University. The “samples” are of course not sampled sounds, but generated music based on Mozart’s piece.

Utz, who pointed me this way, shared a link to an article about this work and information about the music software that he wrote for the SOLIDAC. You can read more at Physical Impossibility whose images and sounds I’ve linked to here.
