H.A.L. This is your Father.

By | April 28, 2006

Lee at Music you (possibly) won’t hear anyplace else made the discovery recently of a old LP from 1961 whit a few synthesized computer language tracks on it. The significance of this is that it could possibly be one of the earliest recordings of the technology that we use so often today. The other significance is that in the recording, the computer sings the song “Daisy” which is the same song that H.A.L. sings in the movie 2001: A space odyssey. And since the movie was made after 1961, it is altogether possible that the producer of 2001 got his inspiration from a copy of this LP. Very interesting. A truly SuperGeek find, and a great piece of history.
