[album] PLATO Computer Music 1977-1982 by Bill Schaeffer

Here's some of the best chipmusic from before chipmusic was even invented.

This music was made on a Gooch Cybernetic Synthesizer at the experimental music lab of the University of Illinois. The GCS was one of the first wavetable synths ever made. It generated sound from looped 256 step waveforms, and was programmed through a PLATO computer terminal.

The CD is available from CDbaby, if you're interested.
