We’ve been featuring a lot of different musical covers here on Zelda Dungeon, but I don’t think we’ve ever heard anything quite like this before. Imagine what the Dark World theme from A Link to the Past would sound like played on instruments that you may not have considered instruments before. Like maybe a 3D printer, or what about an old floppy drive? I know, some of you guys are wondering what the heck a floppy drive is, or wondering how it’s possible to play music on machinery that is used for something entirely different. Trust me, you just have to hear it to understand.
Make the jump to check out the video!
Music played by a 3D printer, a hard disk drive, and a floppy drive- you have to have some serious technical know-how to pull something like this off. I know my brain definitely had issues trying to gather how all this is actually put together, but YouTube user Laurens Weyn didn’t seem to have any problems conjuring this up whatsoever. The gist of it is, he converts digital sheet music into an internal format so he can then organize the tracks and assign each piece of equipment- each instrument- it’s tasks and notes. Pretty neat, right? Insanely creative too, and he’s made other covers using these instruments such as Darude- Sandstorm and the Mortal Kombat theme. You can’t miss hearing these for yourselves either, so check them out on his channel here.
How cool is this? What other Zelda songs, if Weyn decided to do more, would you like to hear played by these instruments? As always, leave your thoughts in the comments below!
