For this assignment, we were asked to remix an existing ds106 assignment.My task was to interpret the assignment given to me by the Remix Generator and complete it.
From the Remix Generator I was given Mainstream Chipmunkd’ [Remixed]: What’s The Prequel? Basically I was asked to take a mainstream artist and chipmunk them using some sort of musical editing software. Then on top of that I was asked to develop the prequel story and generate it in the same format as the original.
What I decided to do for this example was use the mainstream artist Rihanna. (mainly because I love her music) I actually have a audio track I downloaded from Itunes before her Rated R album came out where she talks about each track and the inspiration and work behind it. The track gives you her interview about the track and then a snipet of the song. This album came out right after the whole Chris Brown domestic violence incident.
For this I decided to use the interview from the track that she told about the song Rockstar101 (ft. Slash). I used the program Audacity to cut out the prequel from the first track and then I added the song to it. I then raised the BPM (beats per minute) or edit pitch of the track. I then combined the two tracks, made a video in Windows Movie Maker, uploaded the audio, and uploaded the video to Youtube.
There were no previous examples of this Remix Assignment.
