Assignments: Remix and Musique Concrète

These two assignments must be done before class on April 15 (we will listen to them in class on that day!). You will have some time in class today and some on Tuesday, but most of this assignment should be completed outside of class.

We will also look at several artists who make extensive use of manipulated audio in their music. Today, we heard two tracks from Matmos. Of course, on your own, you may want to see more or more, or some of the more dance oriented work, or a brief interview (from YouTube). If you want something more traditionally musical, you can see how they create a percussive/static-oriented accompaniment to a song by Björk in a live performance of her song “Cocoon”.
