Halim El-Dabh – Wire Recorder Piece

9 Aug

The first ever remix, even before Bill Burroughs’ remix novel. Now for real, this is apparently the first piece of music made by pasting together recordings and manipulating them. The recordings were from a egyptian spiritual ceremony, as it shows. Very interesting stuff. via boing boing.


Bowie 2001

3 Aug

Gotta love twitter spambots. They just showed me the way to this. It’s a remix of the 2001: A space odissey soundtrack with David Bowie songs. It’s a free download on low bitrate, I’m getting it!

UPDATE : there’s a movie too. Nice!

David Bowie – Let’s Dance

3 Aug

Gotta love this song. The original I’ve just listened to includes a great solo by Stevie Ray, but I couldn’t find on youtube. So enjoy this one. Pretty good too.
