Watch Oscar Isaac Tear Up The Dance Floor To Any Song

The dance scene with Sonoya Mizuno and Oscar Isaac from Ex Machina is one of our favourites. Now, a new Twitter feed has popped up showing that the pair can dance to just about any song.


Slick Editing Turns This Pudgy Pup Into A Drum Machine

Video: The right editing can turn anything into a song. We’ve watched a guy turn a bass with no strings into a sweet beat. Hell, Andrew Huang’s built an entire YouTube channel on the concept. But this is the first time I’ve seen it done with a live animal.


A Pianist Recreates Popular Ringtones, And The Results Are Actually Really Fun

Video: Musician Tony Ann recreated popular ringtones — like the iPhone’s Marimba and T-Mobile’s jingle — with a piano. Though hearing other people’s ringtones in real life is totally annoying, listening to their piano arrangements is quite nice (in a “hey, I know this tune but can’t quite figure out why I know it” sort of way).


Moog Just Resurrected A Piece Of Music History

When the Minimoog Model D launched in 1970 (models A through C were prototypes), it transformed a big, bulky, and expensive noise machine into stage-friendly instrument. It was the grandfather of modern synths that now fill out our favourite jams. Now, Moog is resurrecting the legend.


Learn How The World's Strangest Electronic Musical Instrument Works

We’ve heard an abridged history of the wonderful instrument known as the theremin (and synthesisers in general) and you can even “play” one online using your mouse. But how does the darn thing work? It’s simple, but also complicated… but mostly simple.


The Best Music Apps You've (Probably) Never Heard Of

Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play Music, blah blah blah… change the record, can’t you? Stand out from the crowd by using one of these lesser-known jukebox apps to listen to your tunes on your smartphone. In the end you might find you prefer using them to the more well-known alternatives.


Watch These DJs Troll The Heck Out Of A Crowd By Screwing With The Drop

Video: DJ duo Mashd N Kutcher (get it?) are known pranksters, so it’s no surprise that they always have fun playing around with their fans. Here’s a good one in which they set the crowd up with the perfect beat drop — only to cut right into Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” instead.


Hand Drawing Sheet Music Is Such An Impressive Skill

Video: Making music is art. And so is making a blank piece of paper sing. Watch as sheet music is hand drawn using charcoal, graphite, a ruler, and a triangle. The amount of work is ridiculous — I mean, drawing the straight lines for the template is already hard enough — but it’s pretty damn satisfying to see the notes get slowly filled in. Who knows what it will sound like but it sure looks amazing.


Please Make A Superhero Origin Story Out Of The Naked Wolf Man Eurovision Performance

As most of Gizmodo’s staff is from the US, our knowledge of Eurovision is very poor. But we do know that it’s a crime that Belarus was knocked out and didn’t get a chance in the grand final.


Snake Plissken Kindly Suggests You Watch This John Carpenter Music Video Right Now

What’s this? Oh, just John Carpenter performing the theme from Escape From New York live in a Los Angeles recording studio. (Carpenter directed the video, too, natch.) Crank it up, imagine yourself infiltrating the prison that’s replaced Manhattan, and succumb to the incredible urge to suddenly don an eye patch.
