eftifino the very first computer music (16) RE: the very first computer music 29 Sep 16

IBM Ireland had a 1401 computer when I joined in 1969, with a card reader and a 1403 printer with a spinning print cartridge. When we were having visitors, we often started a print routine with the cards punched certain ways to produce a musical sound as the print hammers hit the paper. One hit I remember was 'Anchors Aweigh"!
