Explore remix culture through the visualisation of complicated audio compositions.

About this Event

Workshop Leader: Brian Lucid

Description

The Mapping Mashups workshop will playfully explore various methods of visualising the complicated inter-relationships of “content” and “form” (as defined in musical terms) that exist in multi-layered, time-based audio compositions. It will ask participants to identify, through research and observation, the content and structure of chosen musical compositions, then challenge them to communicate what they have learned through a diagram (or visual score) designed to be understood by a general audience. To support this work, the group will investigate the influence of remix culture on design and music while viewing and discussing historical examples of complex and experimental forms of musical notation.
