Final Project-Yang Jin Kim-11/23/2011

I wanted to make the project for the people. So, I decided to make something common that the whole world is facing, global warming. I think now is the time to warn people once again that we need to save and protect our planet Earth from global warming.

Honestly, I am somewhat nervous since I have heard of many stories and predictions about collapse or destruction of our planet via various mass media. Moreover, recently, NASA’s 2013 solar flare warning even freaks me out. The year what they announced is near at the corner, and I was wondering whether this environmental problem can be solved with our people’s help. And, this is the reason why I decided to work on this project.

I have learned how to make a video by using the Windows Movie Maker and how to remix the music and convert the format of it by Audacity. I was trying to make a good story to make viewers feel like doing something for saving the Earth.

I don’t have any further plan for this project. However, I would like to be familiar with this type of video editing software and want to make more innovative and creative project in the future.


Remixing Application-Kim-10/13/11

This video is based on a recording from a WAFF-48 news report about an attempted rape in Huntsville, Alabama. A video of the news report was first posted to the WAFF-48 website on July 29, 2010 and then copied and uploaded to YouTube on the same day. Just two days later The Gregory Brothers relased an Auto-Tuned song version of the news report(Wikipedia).

This YouTube video shows the remixing of fashion culture in Japan.

Basically, the video is talking about after the war Japanese try to adopt things from Western Country but they mistranslated it. The clip is focus on the mistranslated of Hippie movement in US in the 60’s. This adoption becomes a unique culture in Japan and it interested people all around the world.

Check out this submission in Underoath Remix Contest- Illuminator on Indaba Music.

Above is an example of remixing and how it can be used in a social sense. It is also a legal form of remixing. The band Underoath hosted a contest where they encouraged fans to remix a single through the website, Indaba Music. The winner of the contest would have their remixed version of the song included in the Deluxe Album as a Remix. This is an example of how remixing can be used in a legal way in the music industry, as the band encouraged the remixing and creativity of their fans.

Remix Application Example

Below are two songs in which the original has been remixed with some dubstep. I am thinking of using the original version for my animation project. According to Wikipedia, dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in south London, England. Its overall sound has been described as “tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals. Flight Facilities song “Crave You”  has been tampered in multiple ways in the dubstep version. Vocals do exist from the original but lots of bass lines and drum patterns are very evident giving it a more electronic feel. See for yourself!

My project inspiration

I am thinking of composing different melodies with different types of music and remixing them. I like to create something creative music video type. I can make slides of pictures to make a video, but at this time, I need to compose my own music using mixer, and this is going to be my challenging one.
