Classic! Hear Bach played on a dot-matrix printer

If you liked the "Back to the Future" theme and Simon and Garfunkel's "Sound of Silence" played on computer drives, you're going to love this dot-matrix printer covering Bach.

If only Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach could have known that his popular organ piece "Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565" would be played 181 years later like this.

It's a great idea, it turns out, pumping classical music through a tech dinosaur.

The team behind this fun video, Germany-based MIDI Desaster, outfitted a vintage 24-pin dot matrix printer to play MIDI files. Besides playing Bach's most famous piece, they've covered more modern music with it, like Survivor's 1981 hit "Eye of the Tiger."

The team says on YouTube, "This it not RETRO, it is classic!"

Give it a listen. Want to know how it's done? Check out this video.
