WATCH: Gabriel Kahane Turns a Tweet into a Song

For the last several months, Gabriel Kahane has taken on a post-modern musical exercise by beautifully singing tweets in his wonderful voice over gentle piano. He’s used text from Martha Stewart, Nihilist Arby’s, and Britney Spears; yesterday, he sang a doomsday hypothetical about Marie Kondo in 2035, and it’s incredible. Maybe we can convince him to host a special Big Ears 2019 workshop on singing tweets? Scroll through his feed for more of these little gems.
