Watch “Bohemian Rhapsody” Recreated with Minecraft Note Blocks
It sure is an amazing feeling to see two massive worlds collide in perfect harmony. The hall-of-fame Rock group Queen needs no introduction to many music fans, and their best-selling Rock-ballad “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a hallmark in music history.
If you need a backstory on “Bohemian Rhapsody” and why it is revered as one of the greatest songs in history, you can head over to our review of the song. There have been countless covers and tribute versions of this song over the years and everyone adds in their own twist to the song. However, not many would attempt to create the music of “Bohemian Rhapsody” within a game, let alone the building-blocks game of Minecraft.
Minecraft is a game created by Mojang and owned by Microsoft at the moment. On YouTube Gaming, Minecraft holds one of the biggest platforms and audience bases. In a nutshell, the game is about mining blocks and crafting items from them–hence the name Mine-craft. It is an open-free roam game with boss battles to be attempted at your own free will. The game is also open to multiplayer via Realms.
In a little advanced Minecraft gameplay, the player can find note blocks, a block that is able to produce a sound once connected to a power source. The sound output happens in frequencies known as ‘ticks’ within the game. This tick speed can be controlled to some extent with another block named ‘repeaters.’ The note block sounds can be altered by placing a different type of other blocks next to it.
Here’s a little tutorial on using note blocks in Minecraft for you to get an idea of how complicated the “Bohemian Rhapsody” is.
