In 1961, Stuart programmed Iowa State University's CYCLONE computer (a derivative of the Illiac) to play simple, recognizable tunes through an amplified speaker that had been attached to the system originally for administrative and diagnostic purposes. A recording of an interview with Stuart and his computer music was broadcast nationally on the NBC radio network program Monitor on February 10, 1962.
During the 1970s, Stuart created a version of the Forth programming language called LaFORTH, which is notable for its implementation without an input buffer.
