Your ATARI microcomputer is more than just an efficient problem solver... it's also an inexhaustible source of sounds, shapes, and colors!
This crystal-clear guide is the first book to open up the vast creative possibilities of artistic programming to owners of the ATARI 400 and ATARI 800 - the most visually advanced personal micros on the market. With this self-paced, self-teaching guide, you'll advance step-by-step through simple techniques for creating a fascinating array of sounds and images.
Even if you're a beginner with no computing experience, this easy-to-follow guide lets you start seeing and hearing things on your ATARI right away. You'll learn how to compose and play melodies... draw cartoons... create sound effects and games... and progress to more sophisticated artistic programming. And because the book uses BASIC and requires no programming knowledge, you learn elementary BASIC programming in the context of each newly introduced technique!
