GameGeex - Video Geex: Retro hardware serenade At some point someone heard the sound of a disk spinning up and thought, hey that's a great C minor.

Happy Friday geex, we've got some music for your listening pleasure. Now this isn't your everyday pop radio hit, but it still has a good beat. It's amazing where people hear music and see art. This video is just another example of human ingenuity, no offense off world alien types. I personally never sat down and wondered what the sound of my old hard drive would sound like in unison with a scanner bed. Both pieces for me are just background noise and much like the voices in my head I wish they'd just shut up some days.

I think the first major video I saw in this vein was around 2009, and it was and still is an amazing achievement. While this video is clearly using sampling to achieve certain parts of the music, the original video I saw was just straight generated sounds being recorded without remix or sample. There is a lot of nostalgia in that swimming pool, though I'm sure a good chunk is just set dressing considering their lack of function. Our old friend Playstation is there along with a very old friend Atari 7800, they also dug up the Mega Drive by Sega, that'd be a Genesis to our American readers. This is the first time I've seen someone use a guitar to control a floppy drive though and if the music were more hardcore that'd be pretty metal in my book.

Music is a great part of the gaming experience and it's nice to see our old friends making a comeback to serenade us one last time.
