Projection Mapping for Serato

Ever want to get away from the computer but still use Serato? This projection concept allows for that, sorta. Check out the video, its a pretty interesting concept. Your tracks or waveforms get projected right on the records and the playlists are infront of you. I have no idea how they did this. And I dont really see a real life application for this, unless you were doing a special artsy show. But its cool nonetheless. Video is after the jump:

Everything is a Remix Project comes to a conclusion, Watch parts 1 – 4 here

Back in September of 2010, Kirby Ferguson brought us the first of 4 parts to "Everything is a Remix", a video project that explores remixing through all media and the copyright laws that have evolved around this phenomenon. Here, you can watch all 4 parts after the jump. Its very interesting to see all of the different places people have drawn inspiration from or "stolen" from, as it is today. Copyright law needs to be revised! But in the spirit of remixing and reusing other people's materials, I give you "Everything is a Remix" Parts 1 through 4. Click through to view:

Early 80s Expose about Sampling, “What is it?”, “Ahhhhh”

Hip-hop and sampling have always gone hand-in-hand. The laws are basically figured out these days, but watch the video below to feel nostalgic about the era when sampling laws were still being figured out. Its really interesting to here the artists' reactions on the subject. I wonder if Tom Petty, and the others, still feel the same? Click through for more thoughts on the subject...
