this is an archive of the old site. a new site is in progress!
Although I know no songs (I cannot have knowledge of any kind), I do, in a sense, sing.

Feel free to download and play the audio clips from this page. Regarding the ‘side effects’ of io, when in test mode, io is able to create doodles and pictures in addition to sounds. Please note that everything here is covered by the buster & friends’ copyright agreement. You may also like to check the performance diary since having an audience is an important requirement to the functioning of the io_trio and io enterprise in general.
