Here’s a mix of some of the tunes from the recent rough !Kaboogie Sampler of Irish beats. I did it a few weeks ago for the radio, but the cd deck kept messing up so it kept getting held over. I thought I’d better post it before it’s old news. There are some gratuitous tracks  -  Kid Cudi, the amazing farmers anthem from Collie Buddz and some Irish tracks that aren’t on the sampler, but you get the idea.

In other mashup news –

The RomaeuropaFAKEFactory competition originates from the “Freedom for Remix” initiative, promoted by [A]rt is [O]pen [S]ource (Salvatore Iaconesi/xDxD and Oriana Persico/penelope.di.pixel] and Marco Scialdone, with the support of DegradArte, ComputerLaw 2.0, NeRVi and Valeria Bochicchio.

RomaeuropaFAKEFactory draws on the Romaeuropa Web Factory competition to embrace a series of reflexions and practices focused on the issues of digital rights and information ownership.

RomaeuropaFakeFactory is an international competition allowing its participants to do everything that is forbidden by the rules of the Romaeuropa Web Factory competition, subverting its logics.

According to the rules of the Romaeuropa Web Factory competition , produced by the Romaeuropa Foundation and by Telecom Italia SpA, participation is not allowed to those artists creating their works using remix, mash-up and manipulative techniques on pre-existing content. Furthermore, to participate, the artists have to sign a legal disclaimer making them give up all the rights on their artworks: indefinitely, exclusively, for free, and also allowing the contest producers to freely edit, remix, mash-up, commercialize.

The Romaeuropa Foundation and Telecom SpA can remix. Artists can not.

The overcoming of originality as space for production and its circumbscription in terms of multinational property – more than the real protection of the author’s rights – is used in this context as a critique to a conservative practice of cultural promotion that is not able to grasp the possibilities offered by the intersections of the technological, cultural, social and economical-political planes, enabled by contemporary technologies.

This competition is addressed to all forms of creative profiles and to the experts of legislative disciplines with a specific predilection for intellectual property related subjects, inviting them to submit their artworks on the theme “Freedom to Remix”.

The four categories in the competition:

– 100Cuts: videoart [ ]
– 100Samples: electronic music [ ]
– 100Quotes: literature [ ]
– LawArt [ ] , a brand new creative discipline dedicated to law experts and jurisprudence amateurs, whose works will be constituted by remix and production of legal texts regulating intellectual property

The works will be the object of a research, of public debate and will be collected in a catalogue together with the critical and legal texts. Furthermore, they will be supported by RomaEuropaFAKEFactory’s communicational apparatus. A public voting system will also be set up on [ ] so that the general audience will be able to vote its favourite work in the 4 sections, thus declaring an audience-proclaimed winner.

RomaEuropaFAKEFactory will be finalized into a public happening during which the exhibition of all the generated content will take place.

RomaeuropaFAKEFactory is an initiative conceived by

Mash of the week 9# Gash up. Yes, but is it art?

Posted by homoludo on Jan 23 2009 Posted by homoludo on January 23rd, 2009 filed in !Kaboogie, mash of the week, mashes, mixtapes, music, theory, writing

 Here’s the Banker getting on board the train to mashville with- ‘Gash Up’, an extraodinary  mash/edit/arrangement of -   M.I.A. – Galang Acapella, Aphex Twin – Jynweythek Ylow, Shackleton – Tin Foil Sky, The Banker and Beethoven – Adagio Sostenuto. Check the way he uses the piano from Beethoven’s Adagio against M.I.A’s voice then segues into the Aphex twin piano…gosh.



Girl Talk in Dublin

Speaking of mashes here’s a great, interesting and thought provoking piece by Nick Sylvester and W. David Marx on Girl Talk. For those who don’t know, Girl Talk does fairly dense  mashup albums.(He’s playing Dublin in March, I think I may even be supporting him)


…the extent to which the music he’s working with is so portable, so building-block ready, makes it seem like he’s not making art so much as merely following industry directions: Step by step, like he’s putting together a Lego spaceship. There is no violence in this process, in other words; he’s hardly repurposing much of anything. Instead it’s like a video game in which Gillis has found the warp level — yet keep in mind, somebody somewhere had to program that warp level precisely so that it would be discovered.

On a boat on the Shannon last summer listening to the Girl Talk album with my friend the film maker, Eamonn, I got him excited by suggesting that a program could be easily written to mix and mash tunes by their key and Bpm. I’ve since came across Mixmeister which pretty much does this and it’s a matter of months before it or something similar is used as a plug in for media players.

The piece makes some interesting points and is a good read, though quoting Adorno to the effect that pop isn’t art muddies the waters. The pop he was talking about was Jazz and tin pan alley etc. It’s also a bit unclear what their problem with Girl Talk is – that he claims to be an artist? That he’s ‘only’ a technician?

The problem here is the usual one that the word art doesn’t actually mean anything.

From the hitch hikers guide to the galaxy

Generally, art is a human activity, made with the intention of stimulating thoughts and emotions. Beyond this description, there is no general agreed-upon definition of art.

So every thing apart from work then.

Art used to glorify God, now it glorifies the market. Either everything is art or nothing is. I’d go with nothing. Good stuff, bad stuff, stuff I like, stuff that suits my agenda, but don’t go putting wings or halos on any of it.

It’s important to bear in mind the contexts of mashes and the processes that produce them and with that the fact that they create their own contexts. I remember in the days of Boomselection  thinking mashes were done, but they keep going, to the point they are now a model for new technologies. Saying they are soulless is a bit of a so what?- That isn’t nescessariliy a bad thing. We’ve just had over twenty years of dancing to a drum machine and searching for the smallest atom of funk…which has been good fun.

To what extent is Coltrane’s  ‘Favourite things’ a mash? Anyway read the piece, it’ll get you thinking. More mash theory here.

In other news here’s a link to the front page on Indymedia about a mash(projecting images on a building) I took part in on Monday. Organised by the above mentioned Eamonn, It took place outside the Israeli embassy.

 Here’s one from from A-Force called Dubrock. It’s as much a reversioning as a mash.

Dubrock (320)

Built from –
Welcome to jamrock (damien marley / world jam riddim) vs troca-aplica (dj sany pitbull)

Interestingly he tagged the mp3 as

name: Dubrock
artist: mash
album: !kaboogie
genre: bass

Note he’s called the artist Mash, he’s concious of sampling ethics and is going to post about they’re relationship to mashes on his blog soon. I’m looking fwd to that post, though, if you ask me it’s elastic honour among thieves and nickin’ things is great. A Force lent me this great book on the subject-
