The Star Wars musical floppy

Phil Torrone over at MAKE posted this video of a stock 3.5-inch floppy disk playing a rendition of John Williams' 'Imperial March' using only standard I/O requests and the drive's read/write heads. Props for a deliciously old school concept and execution, but the sound is slightly irritating... though still less irritating than when my childhood dentist performed the Indiana Jones theme on my fillings with an enamel polisher.
