Superflat Single #43 / Tachikoma



It's as true today as it was then - that is to say, 43.6% true. I specifically asked 710W3 to locate and post this single, as it was recorded by me back when I first went to taiwan, but it never made it onto any of my albums from that period, so I've lost the original master.

It's just a poorly but humorously recorded song about the island of Galiano, where computer music was first invented by 710W3 and his team of super-intelligent bears and beavers. They whittled a Commodore64 and a soundcard out of western red cedars, wrote some killer apps on bark, and shortly thereafter, put out the first issue of Computer Music Magazine (under pseudonyms).

Hope you enjoy it.

The cover is an old drawing i made when I was on Galiano, of what Moil Studios more or less looked like. (I didn't have red cuirtains or checkered floor, that's a nod to Twin Peaks)

Man.... I love this song. I love the amateurishness of it. It reminds me of old GHD's and so many things. Of course frank having a conversation with himself is endlessly funny
