Official interactive stem mixer site for Courtney Barnett’s new album Things Take Time, Take Time. Album out November 12th.
For me, this is the future of music,that allows users to engage with music in their own way. Personally, I stripped it back to drum and bass. It created for a whole different feel and better allowed me to appreciate Barnett’s lyrics.
Often when asked about predictions for the future, I wonder if there will come a time when we can quickly and easily remix music, leaving our own mark. To me, this would need some sort of audio track recognition. I wonder though whether at the same time that such technology becomes available, whether copyright will simply hold us back.
Leaves me thinking that this would probably completely change the way music is recorded in the first place? For example, not sure how Jacob Collier’s hundreds of tracks would be translated into a cleaner UI?

Along with the, this election has produced some creative responses.
I don’t fancy myself to be the van Gogh of design, to be anywhere on the level of Stallman or Carmack in my approach to copying, possessing even one-one-hundredth of Steve Jobs’ ability to steal artfully, or to be in any way comparable to Charles or Ray Eames. But I can certainly copy all of their work. I can copy their mindset, their process, and their designs.
I can make cheap, small-scale facsimiles, fangzhipin, to demonstrate some quality of the original. I can make exact replicas, pixel-perfect fuzhipin, to learn how the originals and their creators work. Or I can create shanzhai, unsolicited redesigns, commenting and riffing on the work of others. All these copies have an important role to play in the process of design.
Charlie Dektar offers up satirical versions of children’s chapter books like “Harry Potter” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” adapted for the age of climate catastrophe.
Augustus Gloop is an awful child,
Whom we would normally body-shame through song,
But what we’re more concerned about
Is land degradation and desertification,
Which led to the collapse of global supply chains
And drove Willy Wonka out of business,
Leading to our acquisition by Amazon,
Which renamed us “Amazon Sugars”
And only lets us make hard, salty nut rolls,
So enjoy the rest of your tour, led by Jeff Bezos,
I’m sure that it will be a lot of “fun,”
And Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe:
Once, there were four children, named Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. They were all consumed by a plague of ancient diseases unleashed from the melting Siberian permafrost.
They go with some of the other literary responses associated with COVID-19.
“It was impressive until they asked Trump what he ate for lunch that day and he said, ‘Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV,’” Jimmy Fallon joked after the president once again bragged about his cognitive test results.
Oh, and there is always Sarah Cooper:
Gif the dub is a toy that mashes up gifs from giphy and sounds from freesound.
Introducing the first ever DIY Supergroup: the self-isolation comp of your dreams.
