House of the Rising Scanjet

There may not be a ghost in the machine, but there’s a musician trapped inside. YouTuber BD594 has unleashed the inner-Hendrix in a variety of old-school gadgets, creating a full-on rock-and-roll band. While they don’t quite move like Jagger, their peformances are inspired. Band members consist of:

  • HP Scanjet 3P (vocals).
  • Atari 800XL with an EiCO Oscilloscope (organ)
  • Texas instrument Ti-99/4A with a Tektronix Oscilloscope (guitar)
  • Hard-drive powered by a PiC16F84A microcontroller (drums)

Other than the noises created by each device, no sampling or other audio was used. The band also does a nice version of Bohemian Rhapsody. Personally, I’m waiting for Free Bird.
