Surrounded by relics of a bygone era, musician Julian Corrie put together an absolutely amazing orchestra of retro hardware at the bottom of a drained pool at the behest of filmmaker James Houston in Polybius. While we've regularly run into videos of hard drives being used to do covers of classic songs, this takes the concept and ups the ante a hundred fold. Amazing.
We are submerged in a dry swimming pool. A SEGA Mega Drive, Commodore 64, floppy disk drives and hard drives sing in unison. The unusual ensemble (controlled live via MIDI) are given a last curtain call in a nostalgic farewell to forgotten friends.
