HP-85 Playing the William Tell Overture


The entire score and the mp3 audio is at:





If they can get the thing to play Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, or the whole 5 hours of Wagner's Parsifal, that would REALLY impress me....

Come on Les, this was done in the late 70s, people then actually
thought it was cool to make their computers go BEEP BEEP.

However, come to think of it, nowadays, people think its cool to make their cell phones go BEEP BEEP.

So there is hope, just convince somebody to make their old Ericsson or Nokia phone play these tunes and I think I can convert the tone sequences to the format the HP-85 uses.

Actually, there must be tons of (old) ringtones around, maybe some good soul (with lots of free time) can help.

No? well it was just a thought :-)
