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.

Sources for the video are included in the video description on the Youtube page.

Here is the video that I looked at:

When thinking about remixes that have had an impact on me, the one that stands out to me the most comes in the form of a song by an artist named Frank Ocean. In February of 2011, Frank Ocean released a mixtape called Nostalgia, Ultra for free on his website which features a mix of his own original music as well as remixes of songs written by other artists. The opening song of the mixtape is a remix of Strawberry Swing by Coldplay. The music is the exact music from the original to Frank recorded his own lyrics on top of. Towards the end of the track, the faint sound of a buzzing alarm clock becomes apparent and slowly drowns out the music until the music is completely lost and the alarm clock is the only sound that you hear.
