Didn’t you hear? Everything is a remix! Robert Grigsby Wilson and Kirby Ferguson have put together a four-part webseries detailing the history of the remix phenomenon, and in the process they discover that just about everything is a remix! Here’s a short synopsis:
Remixing is a folk art but the techniques involved — collecting material, combining it, transforming it — are the same ones used at any level of creation. You could even say that everything is a remix.
I’m seriously embarassed that I haven’t posted this before now.
Everything is a Remix is an ongoing series, so expect to see parts 3 and 4 on The Back Row in the future! Support the series by clicking here!
