The IBM 7094 Computer at Bell Labs Sings
"A Bicycle Built For Two" ("Daisy"), circa 1961

Remember the scene in "2001: A Space Odyssey" when the HAL 9000 computer sang "Daisy" as he slowed to a halt? Of course you do. Now hear the original computer which inspired that scene. In 1961, this performance was generated on an IBM 7094 computer at Bell Labs. The vocal was programmed by John Kelly and Carol Lockbaum. The accompanyment was programmed by Max Mathews.
