Gotye – Somebody That I Used to Know – Old School Computer Remix (by bd594)
Awesome! "Instruments" used include:
Amiga 600 Bass on left audio output and Guitar on right audio output
Each audio channel was feed into an oscilloscope
2 Harddrives as the drums and cymbal
Xylophone as the Xylophone (duh)
Both the Harddrive and Xylophone are controlled by one PIC16F84A mircocontroller
What happens when you take a scientist, liquid nitrogen and 1500 table tennis balls?
Explosive fun! 🙂
