Black Midi Thread
« on: July 02, 2021, 01:54:47 pm »
Black midis are musical pieces made by madmen. When transcribed as sheet music, the paper is turned black by the sheer volume of notes. Some of them are several terabytes long, and some sound pretty awesome despite the ludicrous number of notes.

One of my favorites is 9KX2 by TheSuperMarioBros2:

Anyone else here like black midis, or is anyone just now discovering them from this thread? Feel free to post any you like.

It's not a "black midi", but the concept reminded me of something. I grew up in a house with a player piano. And one of the neat things about a player piano (besides the cool turn-of-the-century tech) is that it allowed compositions to be played that would otherwise be impossible for a human being to manage. I guess it's kind of similar.
