Eye of the…Printer?

Haven't you always wanted to hear "Eye of the Tiger" performed on an antiquated piece of technology?

And, in today’s installment of Someone Who Has Too Much Time on His Hands, behold:

The theme from Rocky III, performed on a Dot Matrix Printer!

From the genius artist responsible:

“The MIDI files have to be edited a bit to be played on the printer: some channels need to be disabled (percussion stuff), some are transposed to avoid exceeding the frequency limit. Also the volume of the individual instruments never fits when the original settings are used.”

Whatever, man. I’m just here to fist-pump.
