A quick post, but a significant one nonetheless.
I discovered these versions of ‘House of the Rising Sun’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ quite by chance on the wonderful ‘Sell! Sell!’ blog. However, they are remixes with a twist – all the sounds that you hear are created by old pieces of technology. Scanners, floppy drives, oscilloscopes (whatever that may be) all somehow miraculously working in sync to produce a recognisable tune. Defunct machinery put to a new purpose – re-evaluation at its best, and a delightful combination of retro-nostalgia, computer-tech wizardy and patience all rolled into one.
I love it and I hope you do too. For more details check out their youtube descriptions.
