Mixing it: a review of Michael Szpakowski's "12 Remixes"


"From August 2011 to July 2012, the video artist and musician Michael Szpakowski entered a remix competition every month, and compiled his remixes (some of them with accompanying videos) on his website (http://www.michaelszpakowski.org/mickiewicz/)… The results are often startling… In almost every instance the remixes have a more resonant and spacious feel than the originals; the sounds are dirtier, fuzzier, more textured; and the rhythms are more complex."
