Kind of Bloop
I think I mentioned this project on Twitter some months ago, Kind of Bloop is an 8-bit tribute to the Miles Davis masterpiece Kind of Blue. Driven by the question how the legendary album would sound if created on eighties homecomputers, Andy Baio tried raising enough money to pay $2000 of royalties. The goal was easily achieved and the project eventually realised.
While a CD is currently available to supporters only, digital downloads will be out for sale to the public on August 20th.
