The John Henry Sampler HyperCard Stack from 1994 #Music #VintageComputing @Apple
To create excitement for the They Might Be Giants album John Henry, an Apple HyperCard stack was released:
To generate excitement for the album, John Linnell created a HyperCard stack for Apple Macintosh that was released in May 1994 and distributed on alt.music.tmbg, the original They Might Be Giants website and Elektra’s TMBG page.
It contained previews described as “interpretive snippets in extremely crappy lo-fidelity” of the album’s 20 songs, which consisted of short instrumental and vocal samples pitch-modulated and played in sequence to resemble melodies of the album tracks.
