In a time where remixes are everywhere, both in video and audio form, my intent was to remix a song without using any audio or visual components from the original piece. I chose to remix #41 by the Dave Matthews Band because of its flexible meaning yet powerful visuals in the lyrics themselves. I wanted to make the video component by using only existing clips from music videos that the band has already done in an attempt to render a new visual interpretation of the song based on the artist’s previous work and existing perspectives. The new audio, a song which I had already created, provides a new background to the lyrics and visuals as opposed to their previous context.
