How TV Ruined Your Life: humor, remix en publiek domein

Posted in creative commons, How TV Ruined Your Life, publiek domein, remix by Jeroen de Boer on maart 13, 2011

Comedy series in which Charlie Brooker uses a mix of sketches and jaw-dropping archive footage to explore the gulf between real life and television.

From hysterical public information films to grisly crime dramas, terror spills out of almost every channel. As Charlie explores TV’s approach to fear, you won’t know whether to laugh or scream. Warning: contains traces of Michael Buerk and a semi-naked lady.


Imagine a jump (John Lennon vs. Van Halen)

Posted in mash-up, Mighty Mike, remix by Jeroen de Boer on februari 16, 2011

Je zou bijna denken dat het oorspronkelijk zo bedoeld is, deze mashup van Imagine en Jump. Verantwoordelijk hiervoor is de Fransman Michael Yung, beter bekend als Mighty Mike. Zijn Youtubekanaal vind je hier en hij blogt ook.

Norwegian Recycling – Mash It Up

Posted in mash-up, Norwegian Recycling, remix by Jeroen de Boer on januari 15, 2011

Youtube attendeerde mij op een relatief nieuwe bijdrage van mashupkoning Norwegian Recycling. Op een druilerige zaterdag als deze een uitstekend vermaak. Hieronder een mp3 van het nummer:

Pogo remixt Johannesburg

Posted in Kickstarter, mash-up, Pogo, remix by Jeroen de Boer on januari 2, 2011

Ik kan er niets aan doen, maar plaats alweer een Pogo-post. Bovenstaande video Joburg Jam is namelijk in de eerste plaats een fantastische remix van in Johannsburg geschoten materiaal, maar daarnaast voorbeeld van het Kickstarter-project Pogo Presents World Remix:

World-renowned sound remixer Nick “Pogo” Bertke is working on a new project — and he needs your help.

For “World Remix,” Pogo plans to travel the world Matt Harding-style, collecting sight and sounds as he goes, with the ultimate goal being “to compose and shoot a track and video for each major culture of the world.” The project will be funded entirely through pledges submitted via Kickstarter, and released worldwide on CD, DVD, and made available for download on

“I am deeply inspired by the films Baraka and Koyaanisqatsi,” Pogo says, “and hope to produce the best cinematography and music I humanely can throughout each project.”

The initial track, “Joburg Jam” — a remix of footage captured around the city of Johannesburg, South Africa — was released today.”

Afkomstig van de blog Everyting Is A Remix onderstaande quote van Jim Jarmusch:

Everything Is A Remix kwam hier overigens al eerder voorbij, maar nogmaals embedden kan helemaal geen kwaad. Geweldig project namelijk, deze reeks documentaires waarvan het eerste deel hieronder. De overige drie delen staan nog op de rol.

Christian Marclay – Record Player (2000)

Posted in christian marclay, mash-up, remix, ubu by Jeroen de Boer on december 11, 2010

De onbetwiste koning van de analoge mashup is, naast John Oswald, toch wel Christian Marclay. De resultaten van zijn vinylexperimenten zijn zowel auditief als tastbaar, speels als rauw. Onderstaande documentaire Record Player (zowel in letterlijke als figuurlijke zin) geeft een mooie inkijk in zijn manier van werken.

Marclay’s work explores connections between sound, noise, photography, video, and film. A pioneer of using gramaphone records and turntables as musical instruments to create sound collage, Marclay is, in the words of critic Thom Jurek, perhaps the “unwitting inventor of turntablism.” His own use of turntables and records, beginning in the mid-1970s, was developed independently of but roughly parallel to hip hop’s use of the instrument.”

Pogo doet het nu met een kleine prinses

Posted in mash-up, Pogo, remix by Jeroen de Boer on december 10, 2010

Pogo (Nick Bertke) maakte in dit geval gebruik van beeld en geluid van de film A Little Princess en ik neem wederom m’n pet af voor zoveel creatieve monnikenarbeid.

Whisperlude is my remix of A Little Princess, comprising harp sections, sound effects and vocal syllables recorded from the film. There are well over 100 different sounds in total, and it was quite a challenge when sequencing and mastering to keep it all sounding neat and coherent.

In editing the video for Whisperlude, I wanted to bring into fruition emotional experiences I’ve had over the past year by juxtaposing shots of sadness and happiness. The result is a video that isn’t as cheerful as most of my works, but one that I’m able to connect to on an emotional level very well.

Whisperlude marks the first of my videos to feature any kind of visual effects, and don’t be surprised if it’s the last. While the fruits of my labour are satisfying, it’s difficult for me to justify them delaying the release of a track this much. The rotoscoping and tracking involved had me go without sleep for several days, as if levelling each shot isn’t tedious enough with each video I produce. Nevertheless, I’m very happy with the results, and I don’t think such a rapid succession of shots could have worked any other way.

As always, picking a name took some time. I eventually narrowed my choices down to Whisperlude and Saratone (Sara being the main character of the film). I just happened to be speaking with YouTube wunderkind HomeStarRunnerTron before posting the video, who was kind enough to ask his family for a second opinion. With their help, I uploaded this track immediately with a title I think suits it well! My heart goes out to Skye and his family for always being such beautiful people.

Many thanks to everybody who has watched the video and downloaded the track. I hope you enjoy it.

Een nieuwe dag een nieuwe Pogo

Posted in mash-up, Pogo, remix by Jeroen de Boer on december 5, 2010

My remix of vocals, sound effects and musical chords from the 1995 classic ‘A Little Princess’ directed by the brilliant Alfonso Cuaron. With the possible exception of ‘Go Out And Love Someone’, this marks the most vocal samples I’ve extracted and sequenced in one track.”

Ontzettend bewonderenswaardig wat Pogo (echte naam: Nick Bertke) voor elkaar krijgt. Bekijk zeker meer van diens werk op zijn Youtubekanaal, of website.
