Super Mario video game MIDI art music thing

Really you just have to watch this, but in short, when you write music in MIDI you're really creating a complex piano roll (like those old-tymie player pianos would use), one large sheet where all of your instruments (and what notes they're playing) are all arranged for you visually by little dots, dashes, and lines.
The fact that some one drew pictures using this music note information isn't all that remarkable, the fact that it's not only well composed, but identifiable as a mash up of Super Mario musical themes is incredible.
