I recently remixed the Jamaican dancehall artiste Busy Signal’s 2009 track “Picante”.
I participated in the Assembly 2011 music competition (had other plans first…) with it, but (as I assumed) it didn’t quite work out for me — 9th position. :D
Anyway, go on and give it a listen here:
I recently participated in a remix competition of the biggest cult hit “Oi Beibi” of a legendary Finnish rap band Raptori, who were mainly active in 1990-1991 and make a comeback every 10 years (2010 being their second comeback). I was selected as one of the Top 5 finalists. If you are on Facebook, you can listen to and vote (i.e., “LIKE”) my remix right here! Thank You. \o/
This is what lecool barcelona had to say:
Finnish expatriate artists and designers Elina Orpana http://elinaO.com and partner Juha Fiilin http://fiilin.com launch their first exhibit dedicated to Heinola, a lovely little Finnish town in the middle of nowhere, and Helsinki. In a 3 part expo: 1- Lago Melodías- with avant garde artist and Heinola native Mikko Karvonen, we see how lakeside ripples and cross-sectioned tree trunk lines are converted to sound in an otherwise soundless environment 2-“Amistad”- reflects on the Finnish national pastime of love and respect for nature and 3- “Hell Sin K”- an exposé on the darker side of Finnish nightlife in the capital, and it isn’t very pretty what a town without pity can do. It’s not all tree-hugging apparently. Yet another “le cool experience” to invite everybody you know. Be there or be square.
These are the photos used to generate the sounds:
And these are the resulting soundscapes:
