TikTok has led me to discover so many random facts, techniques, and products, and of course this artist popped up and started a new obsession. His videos are mostly of him on Omegle, in front of a piano, chatting with strangers, then asking them, “Hey, can I play you a part of my new song?” The moment his fingers touch the keyboard is the moment these strangers’ jaws drop. His name is Ethan Bortnick, which . . . I don’t know . . . his name feels so underwhelming compared to the layers in his classical leaning, but incredibly modern songs. Whatever. I’m not his publicist.
for people who like Billie Eilish and Alejandro Aranda (scarypoolparty)
