|The Universe is the interior of the Light Cone of the Creation
|Fuzzy, "I Heart Alan Turing"|
So a few weeks ago it was Alan Turing's yahrzeit, and today it's his birthday.
Everybody should have music on their birthday.
Matmos, "Enigma Machine for Alan Turing"
The Enigma machine featured on this song was recorded at Cryptography Research in San Francisco. We are grateful to Paul Kocher for granting us access to this fragile, historic object. MIDI information within the song is being encrypted by a MAX patch which hosts a java emulation of the Enigma machine's encryption process.
Mammal Club, "Double Double"
Un-die and silence my whirring mind
Because the chaos you caused
Is what I'm trying to explain
Long Hair in Three Stages, "Turing"
Are you human? Are you alive?
Mount Sharp, "Turing"
We're only machines that die
Our parts disintegrate between the soil and the sky
Until the earth gets swallowed by our star
We'll be atoms again
Fiction, "The Apple (for Alan Turing)"
The algorithm was nothing special
I just took a bite
Pet Shop Boys, "He Dreamed of Machines"
He dreamed of machines
