Inspired by the Jonathan Clarke sculpture

Digital Technology consumes our contemporary lifestyle. We have created it to serve our needs, but in many ways, we serve technology instead.

Andre Anjos composed a truly foreboding funeral march, a requiem for all technologies past, referencing bleep and bloops of punchcards and dot matrix printers, while slipping in a little Philip K. Dick, dystopian warning about the power we place in that technology. If someone were to write a eulogy for HAL 2000, this is the music that would be playing underneath it.
