Playing MIDI files on Floppy Drive Servos

Saw this at Spokane Create last night. It was totally cool. Hopefully the link works:

The stepper motors on the floppy drives are turned at different speeds to create notes.

I was with a group watching a 3D printer run and we noticed the sound of the stepper motors was kind of pleasant. I guess someone else noticed this and took advantage!
