Instead of an orchestra playing the artist’s famous song, old hardware is used for the ‘Scrapheap Symphony.’
The Brother Printer Orchestra was used to launch the company’s new state-of-the-art printer. Made up of old hardware like fax machines, scanners, copiers, printers, modems, and hard drives, the orchestra was reprogrammed and rewired to play the classic Bob Dylan song The Times They Are A-Changin’.
The Creators Project reports that director Chris Cairns and collective Isthisgood? created the Scrapheap Symphony video. They made the discarded relics sing, and even custom-designed their own circuit board to control all of the 97 machines from one main computer. Check out the orchestra and a behind-the-scenes video below:
