Bohemian Rhapsody on old computers & parts Answered

Take 3 minutes from your busy schedule as soon as you can to listen to a collection of old computers and motors (a scanner, a hard drive, etc) playing Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ht96HJ01SE4

From the intro:
"No effects or sampling were used. What you see is what you hear (does that even make sense?)
Atari 800XL was used for the lead piano/organ sound
Texas Instruments TI-99/4a as lead guitar
8 Inch Floppy Disk as Bass
3.5 inch Harddrive as the gong
HP ScanJet 3C was used for all vocals."

There are a couple blips and missteps but it's an amazing achievement anyway. Go! Now! Watch & listen!

That is pure art.

The creator had too much time on his hands, but it is pure art.

Something must have really mattered, to him?
