…Floppy drives can survive?

Batch Totem - Trunkeret & IkoniskUsually the music is the message, but Batch Totem (Jonas Olesen) decided to be different, and has gone with the medium for his latest album.

By releasing the album, called Trunkeret & Ikonisk, as a 1.4MB file on a 3.5” floppy disk, “the idea is essentially to release an album on an almost obsolete medium that fits very well with the music on an aesthetical level”.

“Secondly, the scope of the project is to use heavy compression as a feature that shapes the music, instead of a limitation that reduces sound quality.”

I guess this at least helps prevent bootlegging.
