A MICROSOUND FAIRYTALE
by Stephan Mathieu

SCHWEBUNG
∫∂ APPLE MUSIC MMII

Here’s where everything started to end. Exchanging my Pismo laptop for a brand new iBook, upgrading from OS9 to OSX in October 2002, the first thing I wanted to finish with my new machine was a long overdue rework for Kapotte Muziek. After an immediate crash, my computer came up with one of my favorite pieces of music, playing it all by itself upon restart by spitting out the contents of its buffer in a cascade of data. A Microsound Fairytale is an unedited MiniDisc recording of this event.

Vingt minutes de bonheur, ni plus ni moins!
Maxime Guitton in Chronicart
