Apple II Music Video

It seems that I and my blog readers are not the only ones in the world that hold vintage machines in high regard. The band Grandaddy chose a rather interesting medium through which to express the music video of its song “Jed’s Other Poem (Beautiful Ground)” [iTMS link] from the album The Sophtware Slump. Indeed, the video is a program written in Applesoft BASIC on a 48K Apple ][+, circa 1979. The video was created by Stewart at and the filming involved simply pointing a video camera at the monochrome display of the Apple ][+.

The song is a pleasing, ethereal piece and the video is, as you might expect, wonderful to behold. Quite a throwback.

Those interested may also enjoy another retro computer video, “Hey Hey 16K”.
