70 years of glitchy computer history turned into music
Superb project of the artist Matt Parker Who made 126 recordings from seven decades of historical machines.
The computers are located in the National Museum of Computing in Bletchley Park, Milton Keynes.
Late at night in Great Britain’s National Museum of Computing in Bletchley Park, some of the world’s oldest computers awoke from mechanical slumber. Composer and sound artist Matt Parker made 126 recordings from seven decades of historical machines to preserve their endangered sounds and transform them into music.
“For preservation sake, often the objects of our past become confined to clear perspex boxes to keep prying hands off of them,” Parker told Hyperallergic. “It means that all we can do is look at these peculiar objects through a box and read the adjacent text.”
