Brendan Byrne makes and sells synthesizers on Etsy. Or at least, he did, until Etsy decided he wasn’t building them himself and shut down his store.
The first time Byrne knew there was a problem was when Etsy unexpectedly closed his store three days ago. Despite the fact he seemed to be operating within the site’s terms and conditions, an Etsy representative asked for photos of his entire construction process to prove that he wasn’t just selling on ready-made instruments. Unfortunately, Byrne’s latest synths were already finished, so all he could do was send some pictures of his building materials. As Byrne wrote on his Tumblr:
“At first I was a bit flattered and followed their instructions to confirm that I had in fact built them myself. I supplied the following photographs…
- Shots of my workshop (soldering iron, electronic component cabinets, work bench)
- Photos of the device (outside, inside, and the laser etched logo on the back with my etsy shop html link)
- Photo of the raw materials used to construct the device (walnut and basswood)”
Sadly, this was not enough for Etsy… [READ MORE]

and that mads actually played stravinsky in coco chanel & igor stravinsky and learned piano specifically for that role

Skeewiff & The Charioteers “Don’t Rock The Boat”
It’s inevitable: As soon as a piece of pop music is endorsed by a politician, it instantly becomes embarrassing and uncool. It’s like the ultimate version of your dad becoming a Belieber. U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron admitting that he listens to Radiohead and the Smiths? Newt Gingrich playing “Eye of the Tiger” at a rally? Please, just stop.
The future king of the Netherlands has just gone one step further, commissioning a folk-rap fusion song for his coronation at the end of the month. At 45, Prince Willem-Alexander is the perfect age to take on the role of embarrassing dad—for an entire country.
The song, “Het Koningslied” (or, imaginatively enough, “King’s Song”), begins as a standard-fare, ’90s-influenced folk-pop ballad, but then it breaks into a Dutch hip-hop section in the middle—accompanied by a classical orchestra. To foreigners, it sounds like a mediocre Eurovision entry, but it’s a lot worse when you can actually understand Dutch… [READ MORE]
Alexander Chen spent an afternoon improvising melodies on viola, and recording them through Google Glass. This resulting song is composed completely from 8-second video loops, stitched together into a film. Chen says, “You can see all the layers of the song, like a first-person orchestra.”
