Martin’s Music: A Christmas Remix
Posted by Martin Poulter on 12 December 2010
The audio file you can listen to below is my attempt to undermine the traditional associations of Christmas music; both spiritual and corporate. My instructions from the Bristol Feral Choir were to “destroy” a Christmas song. In the first verse, I’m just dicking about, but after that I try to use the sonic effects to make a musical piece that’s radically different from the source material.
I use three sources: the Christmas carol “Once in Royal David’s City”, a Coca-Cola advert and an Osmonds Christmas special. All the sounds in the track come from processing and mutating this audio.
