just a thought..
one of the reasons why vinyls and tapes are so popular is because they colour the sound in a warm way.
me personally, when I think of MDs I remember the digital artefacts which in my experience occur sometimes on a worn MD over time. could have been my not so expensive consumer model, but those glitches were not so likable to the ears (specially when listened to very loud which you shouldn't do of course, hehe). that said, I totally see now how those glitch style artefacts could be wanted
I love when people get excited about forgotten tech and revive it.
speaking of alternative release formats: I like the idea of releasing a work as an app. many many different options of output and input and almost everyone has the hardware (not that this aspect is at the center here)
