Virtual Memory (Excerpt)

[play] Virtual Memory (Excerpt)

Composed in 2001 using Macintosh Virtual Memory with an AIFF header added, a Jomox AirBase drum machine and a Midiverb. This used to be a 40 minute composition, which I broke into two parts due to limitations on file size imposed by I released this as an album in 2001 or 2002, but it failed to sell well. To try to get people to listen to it, I renamed the files to “unreleased britney spears,” and logged on to Napster, where I would hang around in the chat rooms encouraging people to download them. In those days, we called that sort of behavior “guerilla marketing.” Now, it’s more commonly referred to as “being an asshole.”

The first 8 minutes were always the best, so here they are.
