Event Details

At the conclusion of the Free Music Archive & Prelinger Archives remix contest, we will announce and screen the winning submissions, as well as some of our judges favorites.

The event will begin with the brief keynote from film producer Kirby Ferguson titled, "Everything is a Remix."

This presentation will explore centuries of culture to demonstrate how remixing -- creating music from samples of existing music -- is a good metaphor for all varieties of creativity. Ferguson will discuss some of the myths of creativity, present several popular examples of remix-like technique, and show how creativity -- like remixing -- is the result of three basic techniques: copying, transforming and combining.
