Here’s What Panic! At The Disco Sounds Like When Played On 25 Interconnected Kazoos

Music covers go viral for countless reasons, ranging from the potential discovery of prodigious new talent to, more frequently, the novelty factor of a particularly strange take on a well-known artist’s song.

This instance certainly falls into the latter category, with 17-year old high school student Izzy Humair recently uploading a series of bizarre covers of well-known songs performed on a chain of many connected plastic, multi-coloured kazoos.

The New York-based student who hails from Hong Kong has uploaded several songs where she’s removed the vocals and replaced them with kazoos, including a 20-kazoo cover of ‘Fireflies’ by Owl Eyes and an 8-kazoo cover of ‘Closer’ by The Chainsmokers.

The masterpiece that has garnered the most attention however, is her incredible effort to play the melody to ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’ by Panic! At The Disco with a whopping 25 kazoos. At the time of publishing her video had over 40K retweets and almost 90K likes on Twitter.

Have a listen to the incredible effort for yourself, below.

New device helps you create music with your mind

Original article from: http://www.m-magazine.co.uk/news/new-device-helps-create-music-mind/

Scientists at the University of Washington have developed an interface which collects signals from the brain and transforms them into musical notes.

The music is played on a synthesiser, which is synced up to the new technology, dubbed the Encephalophone.

The biofeedback device was created using an electroencephalogram (EEG) to decipher a dominant rhythm, which is then converted into a musical scale that can be manipulated in real time.

Scientists enlisted 15 subjects aged 25 to 65, with varying musical ability, to test the interface.

Each were asked to wear a cap to collect two types of brain signals, one from the visual cortex, the other from the motor cortex.

The frequencies collected were then converted into musical scales sounding like a range of instruments.

All participants were able to perform more accurately than a random note generator, although those individuals with more musical training showed increased performance precision.

Research on the device has been published by the Frontiers in Human Neuroscience journal.

Developers are continuing to refine the device with the hope it can become both a tool for musicians and patients suffering from paralysis or the effects of a stroke.

Watch Pierce The Veil Perform Soundgarden’s ‘Black Hole Sun’ In Honour Of Chris Cornell

The loss of a musical icon like Chris Cornell is one that is often best summed up through music, rather than words, and musical tributes to the late Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman continue to surface around the world as 2017 goes on.

Bands including Guns N’ Roses, Death Cab For Cutie, the remaining members of Audioslave and more have now been joined by Pierce The Veil, who offered their own take on Soundgarden’s classic track ‘Black Hole Sun’.

The 1994 track was one of Soundgarden’s most popular of all time, and Pierce The Veil paid their respects to their late fellow rocker Cornell by performing their own take on the song at the 2017 APMAs.

The track has also been covered by Guns N’ Roses since Cornell’s passing, and watching such contrasting bands put their own vastly different spins on the same track gives even further appreciation for how incredible Soundgarden’s original version was.

The cover was accompanied by rolling footage of Cornell and also partly used Cornell’s own vocals, making it a gut-wrenching and beautiful affair for all.

Watch the performance below.
