This is the only thing that comes across my mind when somebody say the word “music remix”:
Remix. It is defined as combining and editing existing materials to produce something new. It is a important part of read/write culture. It is rising strongly in the 21st century. There’s a fact that the number of remixes is increasing dramatically. A original song or movie may have several remixes. Remix is not all about music sampling as it has been mistaken by a lot of people, including me. It’s also about films, photos and other things that I haven’t found out. This is an example that I found quite interesting:
The first time I saw this was in my BCM110 lecture. This is a bad lip reading video remixing James Blunt’s song “You are beautiful”. In this video, base on lip reading, they wrote whole new lyrics for the song in a hilarious way.
