"House of the Rising Sun," Performed on Various Pieces of Electronic Equipment [Video]

Using an old flatbed scanner, two oscilloscopes, and busted hard drive, YouTube user bd594 was able to create this startling rendition of the Animals’ classic “House of the Rising Sun.” You may think you’ve heard classic tunes recreated on barely functional pieces of electronics before, but this is a truly impressive effort.

a. HP Scanjet 3P, Adaptec SCSI card and a computer powered by Ubuntu v9.10 OS as the Vocals. (hey, the scanner is old)

b. Atari 800XL with an EiCO Oscilloscope as the Organ

c. Texas instrument Ti-99/4A with a Tektronix Oscilloscope as the Guitar

d. Hard-drive powered by a PiC16F84A microcontroller as the bass drum and cymbal
