Recently, YouTuber Arganalth filled a suitcase with floppy and hard disk drives configured to play music.

His first suitcase symphony covered the " Back to the Future" theme song.

Now he's chosen a piece for his noisy little drives to play that's more poignant, "The Sound of Silence" by singer-songwriter folk rock duo Simon and Garfunkel.

Listen to hear the drives play this iconic folk-rock song, originally released in 1964.
