"Niskala"

Jamuud's "Niskala"

With SSEYO Koan Software

Jamuud's "Niskala" was published by SSEYO in 1997. Niskala, a landmark release by Jamuud (AKA David Muddyman), featured Koan pieces written and recorded in 1996. On the included CD ROM were the Koan pieces and the Koan software required to play them, and, thankfully, audio recordings made of a selection of the pieces.

Generative Music Historians / Collectors

If we remember correctly, only a thousand or so were ever made, so if you bought or own a copy, and have kept it, you are a very lucky person indeed!
