Hoping to unearth artifacts from digital culture’s past, Internet Archaeology has launched a Kickstarter project to fund Now That’s What I Call Midi. The project’s goal is to preserve the past by converting MIDI computer files into a 16-track vinyl EP, featuring familiar tracks from the 90s (including Nirvana, Ace of Base, The Real McCoy, and many others). Only 500 limited-edition copies will be pressed.

Founded in 2009, the mission of Internet Archaeology advocates for the preservation of digital anthropology by acknowledging the contributions to early Internet culture. The organization’s work includes archiving GeoCities content, producing a blog, and presentations on their findings. Support the project via Kickstarter with a pledge of $25 to guarantee your copy.
