andy baio used kickstarter to fund a recreation of miles davis' seminal "kind of blue"
the kicker (sorry) ... he did it all using 8-bit format, i.e. the same format used for 80s computer games, and titled the album kind of bloop
here is "so what"
apparently, he was able to fully fund this within four hours. the story is here.
if you wish to download the album, you can do so here.
