A Theme Song for the Blog

I've found a theme song (well actually a whole CD) for the blog. At the weekend I stumbled across a piece of music by Jóhann Jóhannson  called "IBM 1401, A User's Manual". Somewhat unusually, it's music inspired by a computer that first shipped in 1959. If you're a fan of some modern classical music and ambient electronica then you may like it (think Michael Nyman and Brian Eno).

The IBM 1401
Don't worry I'm not going to make the music play each time the blog loads, first I hate music that plays when a web page loads, it's rude and second, I don't have the copyright to play the music.
