Queen Bohemian Rhapsody Old School Computer Remix
YouTube via bd594. Also see Funkytown!
"I want to thankyou for commenting on one of my You Tube Videos "Funkytown" your blog was instrumental. Please note I created another Video that I think your readers may enjoy. I think you will find the use of HP Scanjet scanner as the vocals as WOW. Intially I tried to get 4 scanners for each vocal track in Bohemain Rhapsody but this equipment is getting harder to find. I had to record the HP scanner four seperate times to represent each vocal track. I hope you enjoy and thank you for your kind words."
"There are millions of computers sitting idle at home using fantom electricity. Let's see where all that power is going. This is dedicated to all fans of Queen and hey let's not forget about Mike Myers and Dana Carvey of Wayne's World.
Please note no effects or sampling was used. What you see is what you hear (does that even make sense?)
Atari 800XL was used for 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 cymbal
HP ScanJet 3C was used for all vocals. Please note I had to record the HP scanner 4 seperate times for each voice. I tried to buy 4 HP scanners but for some reason sellers on E-Bay expect you to pay $80-$100, I got mine for $30.
To quote Ben Rogerson "The old computer parts version of Bohemian Rhapsody is surely only weeks away".
Yes, I agree but what was suppose to take weeks took me months"
