When Vuk Cosic combined his ascii movie making skills with Alexei Shulgin's midi pop rock skills, the genre of ascii music videos was born. Now c404's Yoshi Sodeoka continues the tradition in gloriously green Quicktime with 'ASCII Rock'. Sabbath, Zeppelin, Hendrix, AC/DC, and more are all given a lo-res ascii/midi audio-visual massage. Angus Young's signature gyrations are remarkably recognizable, even when rendered in animated letter form. Finally, rock icons get the iconic treatment they deserve. - Curt Cloninger
