A funny, ingenious masterstroke that made me smile. This very nerdy and curious remix of The Animals' 'House Of The Rising Sun' is one of the most spectacular and coolest covers I’ve heard so far.

One man's trash, another mans treasure as they say. By connecting old used scanners, hard drives and other various trashy vintage computer equipment, Vimeo user PURETUNE has transformed it into a robotic remixing sound machine.

PURETUNE has been recording each instrument separately, before using a mixer to adjust the audio levels. Specifically PURETUNE has been using:

a. HP Scanjet 3P, Adaptec SCSI card and a computer powered by Ubuntu v9.10 OS as the Vocals.
b. Atari 800XL with an EiCO Oscilloscope as the Organ
c. Texas instrument Ti-99/4A with a Tektronix Oscilloscope as the Guitar
d. Hard-drive powered by a PiC16F84A microcontroller as the bass drum and cymbal

Great work! I bet The Animals are diggin’ it too. Knuckles and applause.
