Despair that tires the world brings the old man laughter. The laughter of the world only grieves him. Believe him. The old man's guide is chance.

What could be more prog than playing a Yes song on retro computer parts?

Floppotron: perhaps the bastard child of the mellotron?

I was going to say that it has a lot more moving parts than a mellotron, but then I started thinking about how much power that getup must consume

Then again floppies and hard disks are fairly simple mechanically, maybe his energy bill doesn't come in chapters.

Not exactly prog, but the Commodore 64 had a program, The Incredible Musical Keyboard. One of the demos for the program was a portion of Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This):

I actually recognized the sound of the printer. How do you make music from that?

Heads up all old finnish / scandiprog lovers, finnish newcomer Malady have their sophomore up for listen at soundcloud and out on Svart records on friday:

https://soundcloud.com/svart-record...nen-toista-cdlp

For fans of Haikara, Wigwam, Tabula Rasa etc. as well as maybe the gentler british prog bands. Less noodling and more just great songs and melodies.

Probably album of the year for me.

Their first album is up at bandcamp, it's really good too. Maybe I'm biased since they're my long time friends but IMO along with the first Astra, this is the best prog made in decades.
