 Mac 68K (1 Albums, 13 Tracks)


The Studio
Color Classic: This brute took over when the Classic II's sound started acting flaky. The color monitor was beginning to wear out. The sound from this chestnut, however, was perfect and strong even from the built-in speaker. Meg's Mac from college.
Centris 610 The server. AppleShare File Server 3.0.3. Played a little too fast because its processor was faster than the others'.
Mac Classic II: The workhorse of the band. Peter and Josh used this Mac, on loan from the elementary where we work, to do the brunt of the programming and recording of this album. The 68030 processor was the minimum under which HyperCard 2.4.1 liked to run. Peter recorded a ton of sounds, mostly accoustic instruments, into this Mac using SoundEdit and an external Apple microphone that plugged into the sound-in port on the Classic II.

  • Peter Jungers and Josh Burker


Lo-fi electronic music composed in HyperCard and performed by a trio of 68K Macs.

Peter Jungers and Josh Burker collaborated to create a purposefully lo-tech approach to music making. They used HyperCard to script their music, sometimes creating pieces that were deliberately composed, other times using HyperCard's ability to randomize the music to strange effect.
