Remixes, covers, reactions, samples, likes, virals, lip syncs: On the web, it’s not the original that makes music, but the interaction of many different processes. New sounds are created by passing on, rerecording, replaying and recombining soundscapes and data. In the workshop, the building blocks of music and video will become tangible and playable in the form of samples and image snippets. You’ll create a new song in the miniaturized sound lab.
