MinBytes – A Minimal Bytebeat Album in 1024 Bytes

This is a full album with 9 tracks and visualizer in 1k of Javascript! Each song is created by a tiny function. For example, the first song on the album uses the simple function (t&t>>8). It is amazing the complexity and chaos that can arise from such a simple system. I’ve collected my experiments together into this album and made it available in several formats, please enjoy!

Here’s the javascript code for the first song TAKEOFF!
