I am a remix junky, there is nothing that tickles my fancy more than being able to call out a reference or sample that’s been re-contextualized and re-packaged for public consumption. Some people truly make an art form out of it, surpassing the inspiration and flipping it on its head for something altogether unique and exciting.
Kirby Ferguson celebrates the remix as much as I do and has made his well-known series “Everything is a Remix” available for the first time ever as one long play video. Although some of this content has been around for 5 years now, everything has been given a polish and new transitions to make it all work even better in celebration of the series anniversary.
Grab some popcorn and a drink, get comfortable and enjoy the 40 minute clip, it might even surprise some and change your outlook on what makes something original and why we are attracted to the things that we are in the first place.
