Watch a Team of Old Computer Equipment Perform ‘House of The Rising Sun’

Instead of throwing away his old computer equipment, YouTube user Bd594 has turned a HP Scanjet printer, an Atari 800XL, a Texas instrument Ti-99/4A, and a noisy hard drive into a four-piece “robot band” that’s able to play the classic Animals hit ‘House of the Rising Sun.’

According to Bd595, there is no sampling or audio effects involved in the process, meaning that everything you hear in the video are the sounds that creaky old computer hardware make when tamed in an expert fashion. Check it out before the Scanjet inevitably goes solo and breaks up the band.
