Turn Color Into Sound with Innovative Specdrums Rings, Created with the Help of 3D Printing

From 3D printed violins and guitars to a modular synthesizer and arpeggiator, 3D printing technology has often been used to help musicians play that funky (and classical) music. A creative group of engineering, design, and music students from the University of Colorado Boulder launched a Kickstarter campaign, currently in its final hours, for Specdrums, which is one […]

Today, I’m also talking about a 3D printed medical model, and […]

While we have had our great writers, painters, and a multitude of famous artists throughout history to inspire and allow us to appreciate so many mediums, sometimes it seems nothing can compare to the delight of listening to a musician, with the notes taking us straight up, back down, and on an inimitable journey of […]

Fender Reaches Out to the General Consumer Market with 3D Printed Inner Ear Monitor Headphones

In 1965, Bob Dylan dismayed fans at the Newport Folk Festival by doing something decidedly un-folksy – pulling out an electric guitar and rocking. His fans, expecting one of the acoustic performances on which Dylan had build his reputation, booed and hollered in protest. While there’s some debate over whether the fans actually booed him for “going […]

If you think about it, there’s really no better person to pay tribute to David Bowie than Lady Gaga. Theatrical, androgynous, and wildly creative, the two have created some of the most outlandish onstage characters in the history of music performance. Lady Gaga has named Bowie as the most influential person on her career; without him, […]

Is the Death of the Music Industry a Warning to be Heeded Regarding 3D Printing & Manufacturing?

Is the Death of the Music Industry a Warning to be Heeded Regarding 3D Printing & Manufacturing?

I was just having a conversation with a friend yesterday regarding the music industry. We’d both seen a clip of Joe Walsh discussing basically how hopeless, bleak, and dead the music industry has become and my friend–a long-time musician–agreed vehemently, much to my annoyance. You see, I don’t think music is dead. Walsh’s point, a […]
