Friday mix double header.

With another unplanned week off work as corona-furlough strikes again, I’ve been sitting in my garden studio (oh, alright, in a comfortable chair with my phone) adding to my rapidly expanding music catalogue.

First there’s this chilled out cinematic epic, once again produced from scratch with two completely separate, bespoke pieces of music, which I then mixed together on my DJ app…

…and here is the accompanying, multilayered video I created for it:

After which I was inspired by the warmth of the sunshine to make this rather infectious, (in a good way) Latin-tinged, rhythmic electro number…

…with more optical gymnastics to go with it:

More to come tomorrow, watch this space.

One liner Wednesday: Midweek mix.

The alternative dictionary takes brief sabbatical again this week, to allow me to show off my latest audio visual project.

I have used my sequencer to compose all the additional music required to make a completely new mix of the Kate Bush song, King Of The Mountain, accompanied by a similarly upgraded video.

Enjoy.

Midweek music/movie mashup.

Continuing my mission to squish together unlikely combinations of bands with stolen cinematic footage, may I present my latest mashup of musical madness.

This particular peculiar pairing features The Fun Lovin’Criminals and Leftfield, combined with some predictably blood-soaked clips from movie maestro Quentin Tarantino.

Here is the dc57 Dusted Mix of Korean Bodega, enjoy.

Sci-fi techno audio visual extravaganza.

Over the weekend I created another multimedia project, to showcase the further evolution of my attempts at musical composition.

This piece, entitled Deadlights, is accompanied by a video constructed from clips of a Japanese science fiction movie called Space Battleship Yamato, along with the usual array of peculiar swirly patterns, expertly synched with the music.

I am also testing out my ability to embed the Instagram video player into posts (a process WordPress doesn’t make easy via the mobile app) so hopefully that will appear directly beneath this paragraph. However, if are unable to access Instagram for the some reason, I am also including the YouTube version. I hope you enjoy my cinematic endeavours, make sure you play it loud. ;~}

DJ-dc57 In the house: Remix world premiere.

The main reason I wanted to produce my own original music was so I could use it to make truly original remixes.

It’s all very well to use the digital equivalent of a crowbar and sledgehammer to mash two existing tracks together, to create something larger and more unlikely than the sum of its component parts, but I wanted to be able to take an existing piece of music and be responsible for ALL the additional bells and whistles.

I almost achieved that when I successfully submitted my reworked version of Number‘s Face Down In Ecstacy, but even then I used something I’d previously created, not material I’d specially composed for mixing with their song.

Now, having sufficiently mastered my latest discipline, I reckon I have successfully produced a fairly credible debut; an extended, elaborate and somewhat noisier reworking of Lindstrom‘s The Contemporary Fix

So, here is my first genuine, bespoke remix, with its very own lovingly created video.

Enjoy.

Remix video frenzy.

The devil will find work for idle hands and he apparently has all the best tunes, so maybe I should be thanking that particular mythical personification of the evil that men do, for my latest burst of creativity.

Because, since I got furloughed from work again, I’ve had plenty of time to dabble with my audio visual home production studio (well, ok, my phone) and I have recently managed to achieve some pretty impressive results.

For a start, I made this epic reworking of Kate Bush‘s Hounds Of Love

…along with a truly awesome mashup mix of Madonna‘s Ray Of Light and Kraftwerk‘s Numbers/Computer World, which unfriendly YouTube algorithms decided to block, so you can only see the full extravaganza via Instagram (apologies for the poorly-embedded player, you may have to click the link) which you can access below.

How about a spot of Vangelis, with a track from his Blade Runner soundtrack; this is Dimitri’s Bar, remixed with some additional electro rhythms from C Gonzalez

…or if that doesn’t float your space craft, here’s an extended romp through a Levellers song called 15 Years

But the things I’m always most pleased with are the ones which are solely my own work, like the techno sci-fi epic in my previous post and this completely original, pumping house music jam, entitled Lockdown Funk.

Midnight mix.

And now for your viewing pleasure, my latest audio visual extravaganza; combining a video made using only footage of the 10 mile drive from Bideford to Barnstaple I took on Sunday afternoon, accompanying an extended and somewhat funked-up remix of Kate Bush‘s 1985 classic, Running Up That Hill.

Enjoy.

Turn on, tune in, freak out.

I thought it was time to update my audio visual showcase, so I have added a plethora of YouTube videos to my Sound and Vision page, compiling all the best mixes and sonic experiments from the last few years.

I have also added a link to the folder containing these and dozens of other mp3 files, should you wish to download any of my peculiar ouevre, completely free of charge.

Enjoy the vibes.

Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day fifty three.

Good morning and thank you for joining me on our final audio excursion into the unknown archives of the Melodic Randomiser, at least for the meantime.

So let’s get the last Isolation Radio show on the go, with a tune from proto-Underworld Welsh oddballs Freur and, purely by coincidence, my epic remix of the title track and only “hit” from their 1983 album, this is “Doot Doot”

To follow that, we take a hard left on the musical superhighway and catch up with another poor relation of a more famous band, Love and Rockets, who started out as Bauhaus. This is “Holiday on the Moon” from 1986’s Express album.

And the closing track for this, the last show in the series, comes to you from one of the more bonkers UK pop outfits of the ’80s, The KLF; whose rampant and chaotic career spawned some of the most recognisable walls of sound in dance music.

Thank you once again for listening and I’ll leave you with the 12″mix of the monumental “Last Train to Trancentral” from 1991’s The White Room.

Stay safe, look out for each other and don’t let the bastards grind you down.

Peace
