初音ミク新型3Dモデル登場!『ぶれないアイで』”Burenai ai de” ARライブもう見た? 【デジアイ】

OK JUST LOOK AT THE QUALITY GUYS IT’S SO FUCKING REALISTIC JESUS

MitchieM’s tuning of Miku’s voice is always so phenomenal that I’m just forced to assume that Miku literally comes to life and sings for real.
This model is gorgeous too.

Now I feel worse for Fitzpatrick.

From the description

"This song was specifically composed to torture pianists, which I could have guessed after playing through the game. The reason is the middle part, which lacks any distinct melody, chord progression or rhythm (or maybe I just can’t see them). There’s not a single repitition in that part, which makes it a sheer test of your will to get through. Took me about a year."

"This is the 13th take”

  • Leonardo Da Vinci’s wacky piano is heard for the first time, after 500 years:

A bizarre instrument combining a piano and cello has finally been played to an audience more than 500 years after it was dreamt up Leonardo da Vinci.

Da Vinci, the Italian Renaissance genius who painted the Mona Lisa, invented the ‘‘viola organista’’ - which looks like a baby grand piano – but never built it, experts say.

 

The viola organista has now come to life, thanks to a Polish concert pianist with a flair for instrument-making and the patience and passion to interpret da Vinci’s plans.

 

Full of steel strings and spinning wheels, Slawomir Zubrzycki’s creation is a musical and mechanical work of art.

‘‘This instrument has the characteristics of three we know: the harpsichord, the organ and the viola da gamba,’’ Zubrzycki said as he debuted the instrument at the Academy of Music in the southern Polish city of Krakow.

The instrument’s exterior is painted in a rich midnight blue, adorned with golden swirls painted on the side. The inside of its lid is a deep raspberry inscribed with a Latin quote in gold leaf by 12th-century German nun, mystic and philosopher, Saint Hildegard.

 

‘‘Holy prophets and scholars immersed in the sea of arts both human and divine, dreamt up a multitude of instruments to delight the soul,’’ it says.

The flat bed of its interior is lined with golden spruce. Sixty-one gleaming steel strings run across it, similar to the inside of a baby grand.

Each is connected to the keyboard, complete with smaller black keys for sharp and flat notes. But unlike a piano, it has no hammered dulcimers. Instead, there are four spinning wheels wrapped in horse-tail hair, like violin bows.

 

To turn them, Zubrzycki pumps a pedal below the keyboard connected to a crankshaft. As he tinkles the keys, they press the strings down onto the wheels, emitting rich, sonorous tones reminiscent of a cello, an organ and even an accordion.

The effect is a sound that da Vinci dreamt of, but never heard; there are no historical records suggesting he or anyone else of his time built the instrument he designed.

A sketch and notes in da Vinci’s characteristic inverted script is found in his Codex Atlanticus, a 12-volume collection of his manuscripts and designs for everything from weaponry to flight.

 

‘‘I have no idea what Leonardo da Vinci might think of the instrument I’ve made, but I’d hope he’d be pleased,’’ said Zubrzycki, who spend three years and 5000 hours bringing da Vinci’s creation to life.

What you get when you watch this video:

  • The catchiness of Blurred Lines while maintaining your self-respect
  • An education!

I love this video because

a) it takes the catchy tune of a disgrace of a song and turns it into something glorious

b) includes the line “Get out of the gene pool” and any song with that line deserves everything

we should make this more popular than blurred lines

I can’t believe I put off watching this, because it was figuratively fantastic.

I think “literally fantastic” would work here
