If you’ve ever owned a Mac, then you’ve probably used, or at least heard of, the application known as GarageBand. It’s there, on every single Apple computer, for your use. On a rainy day, when there’s nothing for children to do, they plop themselves down in front of the computer and discover that they can [...]

In 2008, a contest was set before artists and designers. The challenge was to design headphones based on a song title. The contest, entitled the Nokia Music Almighty Headset Competition, has spurred the creation of numerous unique headphones. A particularly inspired design came from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” The headphones, called “The Graveyard Shift,” features zombies, [...]

There have always been great chasms separating generations, but none so much as right now. We live in the era of technology, the Technocratic Age, and we youngsters are eager to adopt new technologies. The older generation, namely our grandparents, has more trouble with them. Perhaps they don’t want them, perhaps they don’t like them, [...]

Has music ever cheered you up? Has it ever helped you remember something you forgot? It probably has, and if it hasn’t happened to you yet, it likely will. Music has the ability to affect your brain in many different ways, from enhancing your workout to boosting your immune system. One useful side effect of [...]

A vacuum is space that contains no matter. Outer space is a vacuum, more or less. We can create artificial vacuums here on earth. The strange thing about a vacuum is that sound cannot travel through it. So, if something big out in space explodes, in a supernova, you can see it, but you will [...]

Perhaps the ukulele craze is limited solely to high schools, but I watched, amazed, as various people, sometimes completely unexpected people, brought ukuleles to school. I thought that maybe none of them could actually play, and were still just learning. But no. They all played extraordinarily well. I have no explanation for the sudden boost [...]

Probably the coolest way to see sound waves is with fire. In 1905, German physicist Heinrich Rubens invented the Rubens’ tube, or the standing wave flame tube. The Rubens’ tube demonstrates acoustic standing waves through fire. The Ruben’s tube is a length of pipe that has evenly-spaced holes along the top and is sealed at [...]

Woody Guthrie’s 100th birthday would have been a few weeks ago. This would-be event was momentous enough for NPR to have a special feature on his life and music – At 100, Woodie Guthrie Still Resonates. The singer and songwriter grew up in Oklahoma and was forced out during the Dust Bowl, along with thousands [...]

The Benevolent Siren
Hi! I’m The Benevolent Siren. I’m a connoisseur of fine vegetarian cuisine, a TV fanatic, an organization enthusiast, and most importantly, I’m in the throes of a passionate love affair with music. There are some songs that play in your bones, veins and guts, not just your ears; those are the ones that keep me going. I guess you could say my heart beats to an 808 drum.
My name is AudiOdysseus. Admittedly, I would never describe myself as a hero of any kind and I tend to get seasick in open water. But I love adventure. There is nothing I appreciate more than exploring new territories and gathering information about the world around me. Those are also the types of posts you can expect from me. I’ll be writing mostly about new gadgets, emerging trends, and my work-related travels to other lands.
I'm a lover of pop-culture, a runner with a mad sweet tooth and an addiction to coffee. Read my musings about life, movies and music happenings here and the world at large. If you see me on the freeway I am most likely singing very loudly in my car. Honk and say hi!
Ace of Bass
Born and bred in the Silicon Valley, I have an innate passion for all things technology. I'll post about home theater, quality sound, apps and much more. If I bump into you while walking, its probably because I'm looking at my iPhone. Sorry!
Hi, my name is Mamadyne and I'm excited to be a part of the Velodyne team, writing about my relationship to music as a new mom. I love yoga, a good book, and rapping to Snoop Dogg when no one's listening. My three-month-old son prefers Raffi to Busta Rymes, which I think is a fair choice for a little guy who poops his pants.
Really, there’s no deep meaning behind my name. I’m the Summer Muse because I’ll be writing here during the summer, I absolutely adore music, and I often lose myself in my musings. I’m young. 18, in fact. I take walks with my dog, read Yahoo! Finance news, chase seagulls, and am an absolute master baker… of pecan pies. I hope to one day be a New York Times Bestselling Author. And no, you can’t have any pecan pie.
