Submission + - IBM 1401 Orchestral Composition

Anonymous Coward writes: "From the IBM DEveloperWorks 22 February 2007 edition:
"IBM 1401, A User's Manual" is probably not on your must-read list (anymore) — but I'd certainly recommend giving it a listen. Icelandic avant-garde composer Johann Johannsson has released an orchestral composition of the same name, which includes recordings of the old mainframe made by Johannson's father in 1971 (when his 1401 was taken out of service). http://www.ausersmanual.com/"
