Last Midi Background (LMB) is an internet radio, a cyberspace shuttle, and a kind of archive. It takes you on a journey through an almost forgotten web. Although it might be forgotten by many, some parts of it are still there, waiting to be explored. And maybe we can learn something along the way.

LMB plays a continuos stream of MIDI music, songs that are taken from websites where they are used as background music.

While playing a song, the LMB cyberspace shuttle flies through a stream of images that were originally used on the website that you‘re (kind of) listening to.

Technology obsolete 🙁
