"In 2019, Vancouver artist Kristen Roos came across a floppy disk for sale on eBay containing the Commodore Amiga version of Laurie Spiegel's'Music Mouse'. This was one of the first intelligent instruments for personal computers, created by Spiegel in 1985 as an interactive and playable MIDI sequencer for the 68k era of Macintosh computers.

From the delicately unfolding beauty of Midi Draw The result is a stunning two-volume collection (VOL II arriving later this year) of electronic music that melds the technology. of the past with the current sensibilities of one of Vancouver's most talented creators.
