Mashup Semester Project

For my semester project I plan to make a series of mashups. For those who don’t know what a mashup is, it is a mix of two or more songs that make a distinctingly different song. I think this semester project is particualarly pertinent to our course because it deals with commons knowledge, and copyright, as well as our evolving ideas of creativity.

Many people do not consider mashup varieties of art, whether it be music, video, or visual, because they relay on existing creative pieces. I will try to touch on whether I think that is a valid school of thought and why or why not.

Here is a great example of a Mashup, by DJ Earworm.
