Hi there

I eagerly wanted to play this song for my kids but the link to the downloaded audo version of this song didn’t work. If you could get that up and running, that would be fantastic.

Thanks,
Gabrial

What a great example of early interactivity! Gee, that would of been so much fun to listen to. The closest sort of example I have is a Ren and Stimpy comic that is a CYOA playing with time. I spent hours charting every possible route through the work.

And thanks for quoting me! Though, I should of explained myself better. :( Instead, here is a quote of Marshall McLuhan I just read that illustrates the point eloquently:

I think one of the things that happens when a new medium comes on the scene is you become aware of the basic characteristics of older media in a way that you were not when they were the only things around. (McLuhan, M. (2003) Understanding Me, p:35).

As for quantum writing. I think I’ll pull on the Saussurian notion of the ’signifier’ and the ’signified’ to elaborate. Where a word is the signifier, for instance a ’stop’ sign (!) and the signified is ‘your car must come to a complete stop, and check for traffic before you continue driving’ (though maybe it signifies just the first part). As you’ve gathered, quantum writing is about having a single ’signifier’ (a single sentence or word or image) with multiple ’signifieds’. So, although the record is a single object, the multiple grooves, indeed, the multiple sentences/tunes, are multiple ’signifiers’. As you guessed already.

However, we could complicate the issue by inverting the process. Are there multiple ’signifiers’ (versions/grooves) of a single ’signified’: the ending?…
