Seek Audio Recordings of Automatic Music
By Karl Ellison

If you go to the AMICA web site at you'll notice I've
switched to presenting live recorded music of instruments, rather
than just a MIDI file plinking in the background.  I change the music
on the site every 30-60 days.

If you have reasonably good quality recordings of your automatic
instrument, I would be interested in receiving it (and a scan of the
roll/box label) for inclusion on the front-page music in the months
to come.  I'm looking for music that's reasonably melodious, e.g.,
most reproducing roll fox-trots, etc.  Nothing off-center or bombastic
that would put off the garden variety visitor.  Of course, this is
a subjective restriction, but those of you who've purchased my piano
rolls from New England Music Rolls have a feel for what I mean.  No
guarantees if it happens to fall outside my measure or is too low of

Please let me know if you have a contribution before actually sending
