I have been recording a fair bit with the kids over the last few months: vocals, pots’n’pans, handclaps, guitar, and most recently – Gabriel’s cello. Using a combination of Ardour, Audacity, and mobile apps like StudioTrack, we have been collecting audio and playing with looping and remixing clips. The track above is a sample of the zany antics we have been up to.
I spent an hour going through the lists of micropayment site Flattr early this morning and found a number of software, audio, and video gems. Flattr was in private beta for much of 2010, but as of August is now open to the public. It functions as an online tip jar for projects you find useful or worthy – encouraging developers to share their resources and users to share their support.
The video Everything is a Remix is one of the hundreds of projects listed at Flattr. The first episode of this four-part video series has been published with part two scheduled to be complete near the end of 2010. If you like it, why not consider leaving a mircopayment via Flattr to keep production rolling.
