Apple II Enthusiasts Gather for Special Concert Event

If you’re a fan of vintage computing and happen to be in the Los Angeles vicinity, you won’t want to miss an intriguing event this weekend. Organized by the Machine Project, the event will showcase a unique concert performed entirely on Apple II computers.

The concert is set to begin at 8 PM PT on June 25, featuring a 16-step sequencer created by Jason Torchinsky.

This sequencer will control a series of Apple II computers to produce music. It’s worth noting that the original Apple II lacked a dedicated sound synthesis chip, instead using a method that involved sending precise clicks to its speaker, resulting in a somewhat rudimentary sound output.

The upcoming performance is expected to offer a fascinating auditory experience, given the unique characteristics of the Apple II’s sound capabilities.
