"Music from Mathematics" LP was created using an IBM 7090 computer

Research work at Bell Labs in the late 50s and early 60s into computer generated sound brought about the release of a vinyl LP called "Music from Mathematics". The music on the LP was solely created using an IBM 7090 computer and a digital to sound transducer. On one of the tracks - "A bicycle made for two" you could even listen to the computer sing the words. An amazing recording years ahead of it's time.
