Old Technology Making Music: ‘Eye of the Tiger’ on a Dot Matrix Printer and ‘Tainted Love’ Played on Hard Drives

I’m such a sucker for these clips of outmoded technology making music. In the first video by MIDIDesaster we listen as Eye of the Tiger by Survivor is played on a dot matrix printer. In the second video by Gigawipf, a box of hard drives plays ‘Tainted Love’ by Soft Cell. Gigawipf has dozens of other songs recorded with hard drives you can listen to here, and if you liked these you should also check out Polybius, and still my all-time favorite House of the Rising Sun which I managed to turn into a ringtone because I’m like that.
