These are the droids you’re looking for!

Star Wars 7 is around the corner so it’s time to summarize the last 6 movies in remix. First up is DROIDS. In the process of making it I couldn’t resist also making a video of R2D2 with subtitles. I’ll be doing a few more of these this year leading up to the release of SW7. So far on the Star Wars tip i’ve also done DARKSIDE and YODA

Disstrack von Jan Böhmermann an seine Hater

YouTube: Battlerap – NEO MAGAZIN mit Jan Böhmermann (via Testspiel)

Letzte Woche hat Jan Böhmermann im Stil von Stephen Colberts Format „The Word“ das Band-Aid-Projekt von Campino auseinandergenommen, dafür im Netz die üblichen Hasskommentare bekommen, die er nun zu einem Disstrack remixt seinen Hatern um die Ohren haut.

NEO WAGAZIN ist zurück und gibt den Hatern ein Gesicht. Härter als Bushido und schicker angezogen als Kay One. Der hackende NEO MAGAZIN-Hasser hat mal wieder unsere Sendung gekapert und rappt Jan Böhmermann aber mal so richtig die Meinung.

Apple’s Siri rappt „Know How“ von Young MC

Sampling und Remix-Guru Skeewiff lässt Siri, Apples Sprachassistentin für iPhone und iPad,  „Know How“ von Young MC rappen und wirft die Frage in den Ring: „Can Cortana do this?“

Some of the busiest rhymes ever made by man
Are goin’ into this mic, written by this hand
Are comin’ out of this mouth, made by this tongue
I’ll tell you now my name, my name is SIRI

„2001 : A Remix“ von Eclectic Method

YouTube: 2001 : A Remix | (via @EclecticMethod)

Der Kubrick-Klassiker 2001: Odyssee im Weltraum von Eclectic Method zu einer Electro-Version von „Also Sprach Zarathustra“ remixt.

It’s taken me till 2014 to remix 2001, but with the film relaunching in British cinemas, I thought now would be a great time to do it. This mix contains almost every scientific prediction in the film mixed with the space age synth sounds that were just around the corner. Much that Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke predicted has come to pass – touch screen portable computers, video phones, Space Stations, in-seat video entertainment, computers beating humans at chess. So far though, Siri hasn’t switched off anybody’s life support.

The original had minimal dialogue, communicating through moving images. The monolith was built on a 1 : 4 : 9 ratio (the squares of the first three integers), the same ratio as a cinema screen on its side. When the humans/monkeys see the monolith it enlightens them, when the screen goes black, you, the viewer, are now looking at the monolith on it’s side enlightening you. Whether true or not, Kubrick hid many many objects with this ratio throughout the film. The whole film is built on an electro-version of the legendary “Also Sprach Zarathustra” by Richard Strauss.

The LHC Remix

Statt rumzuquatschen hat Tim Exile bei seinem TEDx-Vortrag verschiedene Klänge, die er zuvor im Rechenzentrum des LHC-Teilchenbeschleunigers aufgenommen hatte, mit Geräuschen aus dem Publikum live zu einem Track remixt. Am Ende tanzen alle dazu auf der Bühne. So sollten Konferenzen immer sein.

YouTube: Performance — the LHC remix | Tim Exile | TEDxCERN

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. An inventor of electronic instruments and a DJ, Tim Exile recorded sounds from the data centres of the Large Hadron Collider and mixed them with the sound of the audience at TEDxCERN to create a unique audio track. His performance brought the audience dancing onstage.

Tim Exile composes, improvises, and produces electronic music. He also invents and makes the electronic musical instruments. A violinist as a child, his life changed when he first heard house music. Ever since, he has been experimenting and exploring the world of sound with bootleg rave tapes, Djing, programming, drum and bass, before moving onto polished studio productions and creating instruments. Exile has a degree in philosophy and is also an occasional hermit. He has toured the world and released software creations in collaboration with tech music leaders Native Instruments.
