Mixing it: Michael Szpakowski's 12 Remixes.
Reviewed by By Edward Picot.
Edward Picot reviews Michael Szpakowski's 12 Remixes, a series of 12 pieces mixing audio and sometimes video, that the artist submitted to a competition every month. Picot carefully analyses Szpakowski's creative method and shows how in almost every instance Szpakowski's remixes have a more resonant and spacious feel than the originals; the sounds are dirtier, fuzzier, more textured; and the rhythms are more complex.
