Join CounterCorp and Red Reels on Thursday, April 25th at 7pm as they present an evening of film and live music including remix DJ officerfishdumplings and a screening of the music doc RIP! A Remix Manifesto. The Red Poppy Art House is located at 2698 Folsom St, San Francisco, Ca 94110.
officerfishdumplings recorded works from world musicians and integrated them into an interactive remix platform that allows users to create audio-visual remixes on the fly. He will perform an improvised remix using his platform and allow audience members to give it a try. This technology is part of officerfishdumplings' larger project called remix ←→ culture, committed to creating a fair trade remix music where anyone can have fun making audio-visual remixes and learn about source musicians through access to interviews, lyrics, and instrument descriptions.
RIP! explores the notion of copyright in the Digital Information Age, as technology shatters the traditional wall between producers and consumers. The film's protagonist is a "mash-up" DJ known as Girl Talk who performs by chopping up and re-assembling other musicians’ songs. This participatory media experiment sounds an urgent alarm to save our culture and right to creative expression from corporate control and commodification.
