Software - Chip-Meditation (1985) + Electronic-Universe I (1987)
Two fascinating journies into the deep subconscious of a TRS-80 (or maybe even an Amstrad CPC 464???) If you have a taste for the pseudo-futuristic sounds of synth arpeggios, drones, loops, trills, twinkles, sprinkles, and dollops, Software is a veritable feast. Software consisted of German (no surprise there) duo Peter Mergener and Michael Weisser, and these, their first two albums, are some of the best in their class. Highly, highly recommended for anyone nerdy/old enough to get down!
