Party Chambers – Music from the Roland PMA-5

The Roland PMA-5 is a hand-held composition unit from 1996 that has a touchscreen interface with a stylus. Before today’s pocket computers (called ‘smart phones’ by their users) this was quite a novel device. I bought one cheaply on the used market in 2006 and decided to make some music using ONLY the PMA-5. I composed one track on an airplane and another in bed while my wife was asleep next to me. Some of the results are posted on MySpace under the moniker “Party Chambers”. Check out the tracks here:
