star-wars-music

A moving music-only version of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer was released by Disney and revised by Tim Gonzales revised to fill in the gaps left by dialog removal.

Keep in mind that this isn’t new music composed by John Williams. Slashfilm speculates that “it is remix and reworking of mostly previous music, along with some new material created just for the trailer”. This “new material” was likely the work of other composers working on the film.

Regardless—get ready for more feels after the break…

The music of John Williams will sound extra sweet through these Star Wars Bluetooth speakers. Wirelessly stream music from four different characters including Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Darth Vader and Captain Phasma.

They’re small and portable, and they work with basically any audio device out there. They’re wireless speakers with one-touch connectivity to your Bluetooth device, but they also have a standard 3.5mm audio jack.

Check out the Chewbacca and Captain Phasma versions after the break.

Nicola Pavan of Pavan Wood Works has taken instrument making to a whole new nerdy level by utilizing LEGO in the construction of an electric guitar.

Pavan assembled the guitar over a six day period and pointed out that the hardest part was acquiring the necessary pieces. The whole thing is held together with a bit of glue and screws (even purists will probably give him a pass in this case) and you can see it in action in the video after the jump.

guitar boy

Play riffs and retro games with the Guitar Boy, an electric guitar and fully functioning Game Boy in one.

This bit of musical magic was created by a BitFixGaming boards admin with the handle fibbef. He built it for the 2015 Game Boy Classic build off, and features Raspberry Pi B+ running RetroPie v2.3, with a 5″ LCD display and custom wooden buttons/body.

You have to check it out after the break. Hearing a Mario theme through a wah wah pedal is just too cool.

Zombies everywhere? Seems like a good time to play the piano.

The latest video from Player Piano is actually the first video they ever produced. It took this long to get the rights cleared. Fortunately, they managed to get the green light in time for the debut of Fear The Walking Dead.

The video is a wonderful tribute to The Walking Dead series and features the brilliant pianist Sonya Belousova and guest zombie violinist Eriko Tsuji. The video was produced and directed by Tom Grey.

Check out more images and the performance after the break.
