From a Tesla Coil, to a uni-cycle, to the trusty Commodore Amiga. Listen to Star Wars being played in the most unusual of ways.We all love the Star Wars theme and it's accompanying soundtrack. If like me you've listened to the soundtrack hundreds if not thousands of times you realise how much of a timeless classic the John Williams masterpiece really is. You can also judge how popular a piece of music is by the amount of times it's been recreated using various musical instruments and other less conventional items. Here's a selection of some of my favourites.
1 - Star Wars theme played on a Tesla Coil...yes really! It sounds awesome too.
2 - this talented musician doing an impressive job on the organ complete with Fox fanfare
3 - Lori Graves plays Star Wars on the Lowrey Organ. Makes you feel you're on the pier again.
4 - Guy playing the Star Wars theme with bagpipe on unicycle. Got to love the Internet
5 - Throne Room played on a pipe organ.
6 - The Force theme played on violin and piano. Sometimes listening to a piece in its raw form is the most moving.
7 - Star Wars main theme on a banjo. Yeehah!
8 - The Imperial March on a washing machine. The dark side doesn't seem so dark any more, even washed at a low temperature.
9 - The Imperial March in the style of Beethoven as played by Richard Grayson. oh yes, its all improvised too. Impressive, most impressive.
10 - The main theme A Capella cover.
11 - Star Wars opening theme using Minecraft Noteblocks
12 - Imperial March performed on the Synthesia software program.
13 - The Imperial March played on not one floppy disk drive but eight.
14 - Imperial March 8 bit style. Now this brings back memories.
15 - Return Of The Jedi Played on the Commodore Amiga
