Earliest Known Computer Music

This article from the BBC tells the story, and has audio, of the oldest known piece of computer music, a 1951 medley of "God Save The Queen" (not the Sex Pistols song)/"Baa Baa Black Sheep"/"In The Mood." Now that's my kind of techno.

to be picky, CSIRAC in Australia was probably a few weeks earlier, as also stated in the article. :) gotta give downunder some cred!

Yes, there may have been music made earlier, but I think they mean that this RECORDING is the earliest known. So if anyone's got a tape of CSIRAC tunes stashed under their bed, give it up!
