Whilst some people might choose to release music on wilfully anachronistic media … as delightful and whimsical that music is, the choice of cassette as the distributed format will inevitably limit the number of people that can enjoy it (notwithstanding the ubiquitous youtube).
… or perhaps I have mis-judged, and audio cassette is the future. I am not the person to ask. In my continued efforts to shun all things modern I have invested in this…
It’s a punch card programmable music box, and is shown loaded with my first composition for it (’Penelope’s Theme’).
The benefits of the format far outweigh the downsides as far as I can see.
- 1. Very cheap media. And cheap postage. People will just be buying bits of card.
- 2. Digital downloads: A .pdf to cut out and punch yourself.
- 3. Easy gigs: turn up with strips of paper, and not worry about forgetting the cards.
