We present "Argentine Songbook Vol. 1" a Commodore 64 computer music album with 8 bit renditions of argentinian music tracks in different genres. In this album we propose a re-interpretation of our national music through the use of technology considered obsolete, underground or plainly discarded by todays system and technologic standards, that however set the foundation for today's artistic trends.
This music disc is called "¡Arriba las manos!" (Hands up!) and can be run on any C64. It contains about half an hour worth of music including original songs by our members Co Mu, Los pat moritas, and one original song and various sid covers by Uctumi. This couldn't have been possible without the esoteric and intimate code of riq and munshkr; picassian brush strokes and hieroglyph charsets of alakran and arlequin; arachnic bugfixes of munshkr; dope petsciis of acid and telephatic collaboration from the rest of the pungas...
