I was definitely pretty interested when I saw this module was available. Last semester, I took DS106, and in this class we did a lot of hands on experiments with remixes and mashups. Every time I worked with one I always started pretty stressed out, but eventually ended up having tons of fun with it.
There was one project that I did that I never really ended up finishing the way that I had liked. I was mashing two songs, “Follow Me” by Uncle Kracker and “Where Is The Love” by The Black Eyed Peas. I’m interested in picking back up on that project, and trying to improve it. But mainly, I’m interested in learning more about the history behind remixes and mashups, as I didn’t learn much about that last semester. We focused heavily on learning the distinction between the two, however that was pretty much all we did background-wise.
Overall, remixes and mashups are pretty fun and I’ve been excited to work with them again!
