When hearing a remix of a song it is usually upbeat and almost always makes you want to get up and dance. Basically anybody is able to manipulate sounds and alter parts of a musical item in order to create something different. Remixes are made using all genres of music, not just pop music. Remixed music is often used in clubs in order to encourage dancing, as youths are the main audience for this style of music.
Is remixing still a form of creativity? Personally, I believe it is. Using aesthetics, different forms of music/sounds are recycled, manipulated and remixed together in order to create a new form of music – thus creating something different. But how did the manipulation of music begin? After becoming interested in this particular topic, I thought I’d look further into the origin of remixed music and was intrigued to find that it started with the manipulation of vinyl tracks in the 60s and 70s.
The manipulation of music and sounds definitely brings something different and unique to the world in my opinion!
