MIDI Remixer: Chun-Yo Chen 陳均宥, 中華藝校音樂科 Department of Music, Chung-Hwa School of Arts, Taiwan
The sound of Cold Head (He Compressor) of MR scanner sounds just like a steam locomotive and the MR magnet bore looks perfectly a tunnel. All sounds are the native “noise” recorded in a MR scanner room, and remixed on MIDI.
Diu Diu Deng is a top beloved Taiwanese folk song. It describes the sounds and scenes of a train passing through the tunnels, while there are drips drop in the tunnel orchestra with the steam locomotive.
It could even be an applausive piece of A Cappella
