Hi /mu/. I'm trying to think of the most obscure possible media format to release my hip avant-garde 2deep4u music on. I've already excluded digital, cd, cassette, 8 track, 4 track, vinyl, minidisc, 3.5" floppy discs, and laser discs as too mainstream. I'm thinking about releasing it on BetaMax tapes or maybe 5 1/4" floppy discs or zip disks.

Can you think of any media formats that are more obscure and less mainstream/ relevant in 2015?

Replace the voicebox in an action figure to play the entire album when you press the button.

It plays throughout and doesn't stop if you press the button again.

Never release it digitally.

3/4" U-Matic tape bro. And before you get all concerned about not being able to make it, this was the first digital mastering format to hold the DDP image for early CD creation. Most large mastering facilities can still master to DDP on U-Matic tape. You may find it difficult to find customers who can play it back but if they aren't hip to U-Matic fuckem, I always says.

"Works of pride, by self-called creators, with their premium on originality, reduce the Creation to novelty — the faint surprises of minds incapable of wonder.
Pursuing originality, the would-be creator works alone. In loneliness one assumes a responsibility for oneself that one cannot fulfill.
Novelty is a new kind of loneliness."


tl:dr
great plan if you want noone to hear your shitty shit

im not terribly interested in originality. The whole concept is a farce. I want my music to reach many ears and bring joy to many. That is my struggle. It is far more difficult than creating only what I like and far less selfish.
