Johann Johannsson: Miners' Hymns

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Iceland is home to one of the most vibrant music scenes in the world, and Johann Johannsson is one of its leading composers.  He creates haunting and evocative soundscapes for orchestral brass or strings with live electronics, and today shares with us his music for the Bill Morrison silent film “The Miners’ Hymns.” 

Watch the trailer for Bill Morrison's "The Miners' Hymns" here.

If you search for 1401 music on YouTube you can see two videos featuring both the CPU and the method using a radio. Since the 1401 was about as powerful as a programmable calculator, sure nuff you could do it with them too, with a pocket calculator of the LED vintage.
