50 years ago – First computer to sing – Daisy Bell – YouTube

“Daisy Bell” was composed by Harry Dacre in 1892. In 1961, the IBM 7094 became the first computer to sing, singing the song Daisy Bell. Vocals were programmed by John Kelly and Carol Lockbaum and the accompaniment was programmed by Max Mathews. This performance was the inspiration for a similar scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

  1. I really found this information useful. Thanks for sharing. Although I am very much interested in the History of Computers but I never gave a thought to when the computer was able to transmit sound. I am a faculty of Computer at NIIT in India and this will be useful to my students.
