“Miranda's Big Entrance” (by Lee Rosevere)
Attention all you Coconuts! Here's a collection of Lee's computer-generated compositions created on the TRS-80 Colour Computer, using the Musica II and Orchestra90 programs from 1988-1991.
Lee says: "The Coco was my first computer growing up. We used it for everything: drawing, writing basic language programs, playing Doubleback for hours...and eventually writing music with it. I spent hours and hours drawing little green dots and seeing what it sounded like. The computer had a whopping 16K and a maximum of 4 voices. And everything had to be saved in data form onto a cassette tape, and often the cassette wouldn't load properly. So I saved audio copies of the compositions as well."
Remastered from those original mono recordings, here is a small offering of the music that survived from those days, for all computer-music lovers to enjoy.
