celebrate with music!

Postby aerworuld » Tue Mar 20, 2018 6:04 pm

Hey all,

I just wanted to let you know about a 'tune' I've knocked up using sounds from my Elk, a DR-55 drum machine and some lines of text I've read from a 1983 sales leaflet from Acorn Computers Ltd for the Electron. It's called 'Nostalgia'.

I felt like I wanted to do something to mark the 35th anniversary of the Elk going on sale in the UK.

If you fancy a listen, I've got a page for it over on AET.

Stuart ;-)

Well ... :shock: ... I listened to it ... :shock:

Might need a bit of editing before going on Top of the Pops ... :D

Blurb on page says "Similar tubes" ... is that meant to be tunes.

Maybe we could watch this as well, to celebrate. Though it's very dry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DN_xEnVrucg

Though in its defence, even Fred Harris couldn't put much spice into a programming series and he also had a ZX Spectrum at his ITV disposal.
