Remix Poem with a Remix Message

My friend, Bryan, asked at his blog about views on remix. Bryan fuses remix into his Remixer Machine site, which is fun to use (and something I support via Patron). The poem above came after thinking about how to respond to him. I guess maybe it resonated with folks, since it has nearly 8,000 views […]

Even More Reasons for Remix

I want to thank Sheri for remixing my video about remix that I shared out this week. Her visual interpretation of the video is wonderful, and useful, capturing my points from another angle. Even more, her exploration of remix at her blog is a valuable insight into what we are talking about when we talk […]

An Experiment of Sorts: Some Reasons for Remix

I am trying out Powtoon for Education as a way to enrich a unit on expository/informational writing with my students … and I thought I might as well explore the reasons why one might remix as I explored the site … Peace (nearly remixable), Kevin  

Video Poem Remix: Four Seeds Seeking Roots

Terry wrote the other day of seed catalogues, crafting a fine poem and offering an invitation to write with him in three stems — in the comments, in an etherpad, and in the margins. I took him up on all three and then later added a fourth: Mastodon. He added another branch, remixing my four […]

Remixo Reverso

flower center macro flickr photo by Rob Weiher shared under a Creative Commons (BY-NC) license I took a video haiku by Terry — he calls ’em vaikus — and worked a little reverso magic on it for a remix. First, his (made in Lumen5): http://impedagogy.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/lumen5-video-5.mp4 and then my remix: I remixed Terry’s vaiku in iMovie, […]

Bent and Adjacent, with an Invitation to Remix

Terry did a fine job of laying out the process for making a small bit of media art, using words and image and gif and video, and then adding another layer by pulling it all into Popcorn Maker (now hosted at the Internet Archives) for a soundtrack. See Terry’s piece at Popcorn I wondered how […]

Six Word Slice of Life: Postcard Remix

(For this month’s Slice of Life Challenge with Two Writing Teachers, I am aiming to do Six Word Slices most days, with some extended slices on other days.) Context: This month, in the ongoing CLMOOC (Connected Learning MOOC) community, our postcard theme (we send postcards to each other all year long) is Remix. I decided to […]

#NetNarr: Hacking/Remixing the Game of Chess

A few years ago, for DS106, I was part of a group that did a collaborative radio project that centered on the art of remixing. My segment centered around an activity I do with my sixth grade students, remixing and hacking the game of chess to create something new altogether. It is part of our […]

Stealing/Borrowing/Remixing Music

I spent part of the other morning re-reading a comic book from Duke University that resonates with my own interests around music, composition and remix. Entitled Theft: A History of Music, the book explores copyright law and music composition through the ages. If that sounds boring, it isn’t. The book weaves in lots of humor […]

Remixing Ron: Coloring Our Imaginations

Ron Samul posted a terrific blog post for CLMOOC (Connected Learning MOOC) about how a writer sees art, and how the art might inform the writing and reading. I took parts of his post and used Lumen5 to create my own visual interpretation. The theme this week has been art and color, as you can […]
