Computer Chronicles: MIDI Music (1986)

When you didn’t think The Black Laser could get ANY dorkier, here’s a 30 minute program from 1986 about (then) moden computer music technology. Seriously, check this shit. It is SO HOT.

In another 25 years, it will be amazing to look back at our current ZOMG SO HIGH TECH stuff right now with the same sense of quaintness that I feel about this show. 8mb hard disk? Floppies? 1200 baud Hayes-compatible modems? 7000 1986 dollar CD burners ($18,587.63 in today’s dollars)? EGA screens capable of displaying 16 colors? THE FUTURE WAS THEN!
