YouTuber plays Game of Thrones theme using obsolete PC hardware

Remember when PCs weren’t built to be silent? The era where the flutter of PC hardware would be constant as files were saved, data was processed, and dial-up internet infected landlines. Feels nostalgic, doesn’t it? 

What happens if you take some classic PC hardware and endeavour to make some music out of it, creating a PC hardware orchestra using a wide array of old PC components. Meet Floppotron, the creation of YouTuber Pawel Zadrozniak, a system which is comprised of two scanners, eight mechanical hard drives, and 64 floppy disk drives. 

In his latest video, Floppotron is used to play the theme song of Game of Thrones, acting as the perfect warm-up for the show’s final season. His new Game of Thrones video is available to view below, though we recommend looking through this channel’s back catalogue to listen to some more Floppotroned classics. 
   

The next season of Game of Thrones starts on April 14th. Season eight of Game of Thrones will feature six episodes, each of which will be aired on a weekly basis.
