The Device Orchestra, the orchestra we never knew we needed

Have you ever noticed that sometimes our devices can actually make some pretty sick beats? No? Well, this YouTube channel certainly has, and it has created some great music because of this.

First joining YouTube in 2014, the Device Orchestra has been dropping some hypnotizing and amazing musical covers since then. The orchestra is dedicated to making covers of songs using only electronic devices like electric toothbrushes, credit card machines, typewriters.

Uploading a video once a month, a lot of the music covered are inspired by subscriber’s comments. It was also thanks to this subscriber x creator collaboration which led to the devices being bestowed some wacky googly eyes and wire cleaner arms. Some of the devices may also be seen executing some simple choreography.

Here are a few covers to get you started on your Device Orchestra journey.

What happens when you bring together an epilator, 2 toothbrushes, 3 credit card machines, and 2 typewriters? They perform their own rendition of Britney Spears’ iconic song, Toxic, of course!

With the release of Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon, pay tribute to the world of George R.R. Martin by hearing 9 electronic devices pour their heart out while playing the Game of Thrones opening theme song.

The Device Orchestra hasn’t forgotten the classics either. Catch the wild “facial expressions” of the electronic devices as they vibrate to the beats of Flight of the Bumblebee by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

Speaking of classics, let’s take it to the rock classics with Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now played by 8 electric devices.

And what better way to celebrate the end of August, and the official start of the Christmas season with the beginning of the first “-ber” month, than wishing some Joy to the World, Device Orchestra style.

Funny how far creativity, controllers, wires, and some programming skills can take you!
