A bit of printer and bass,

I had this song sent to me and its pretty amazing,
I never knew that a simple inkjet printer could be used to make cool music.

What ever next, hard drives doing techno.

Cleverly made I must admit wolfie3000. Unfortunately it reminds me of the blaring 'Radio 1' music at work. Makes music like listening to machine 'noise' to me.
In my humble opinion.

I agree that is clever, but I have to admit that the sound of a printer is one of the most annoying noises I have heard, this ain't a song for me.

Haha, just heard the bit where the woman says: "Try unplugging it, and plugging it in again."

This isn't a new phenomenon, in the 60's some IBM engineers figured out you could set the timing on the chain & hammers of a 1403 line printer to create something akin to music.

I've got a couple of MP3s of this printer.

I'm a work at the moment, so I'm protected from much of the big bad web, but hopefully this link should take you to an IBM rendition of Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head
