The ‘cisco’ music on hold.

In the off chance you want your asterisk phone switch to sound like a cisco…


Turns out it’s by Darrick A. Deel and Tim Carleton, and it’s called Opus Number 1.  It was recorded in Tim’s garage some time in the late 1980’s.  Darrick works for cisco so it found it’s way into cisco’s call manager.

Phew that was interesting, wasn’t it?

*UPDATE* For those of you interested, a stereo copy has been located!  I have more information here!

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!

    • When I heard the intro for the show I knew it was going to be this piece of music.
      I’ve enjoyed it on hold quite a few time and always enjoyed it.
      Cant seem to copy the TAL download. Is it for purchase?
      iTunes maybe?

      • Just read further on my blog, and you’ll find the download link. The mono link is on this page, and the stereo is on the newer page.
