Retro Computer Bohemian Rhapsody

Wow…this clip stirs technological and musical nostalgia in a way that makes my little heart flutter. There’s a real sweetness to these outmoded babies chugging along in harmony. I want so much to believe that my gigantic pile of obsolete electronics do this after I’m asleep at night.

There are no effects or sampling. Simply:

*Atari 800XL as 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 for all vocals.

  1. I like the moribund “funeral parlor” sound… Oh, if only there were a vintage Apple II disk drive chirping away in the backgound during the libretto!
