Dot-Matrix Printers Were Born to Play Bach

Is using computer-controlled ancient electronics as instruments a new fad? Not even close. So why is this old dot-matrix printer playing Bach worthy of note? It's because this particular piece of classical music, Toccata and Fugue in D minor, was originally composed to be played on an organ. And at times this old printer sounds so much like a harpsichord you'd swear Bach himself had just hit the print button. [YouTube via Cnet]
