Old peripherals play Bohemian Rhapsody
The whirrs, beeps and noises of old computers and peripherals that were formerly so annoying have been lovingly and painstakingly transformed into art. YouTuber bd594 orchestrated a collection of outdated gear to cover Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. Starying with an HP ScanJet 3C playing the part of Freddie Mercury, then an Atari 800XL makes the organ sounds, TI-99/4a handles guitar duties, and a selection of other archaic goodies make visual and aural appearances. While the scanner did need to be recorded four separate times for all the "vocal" tracks, nothing was pitch-corrected. Pretty cool stuff!
