Remix the Ring

OK folks is make your own music time again.

Remember the hard drive music competition? (Refresh your memory here and here)

Well this time we aren’t messing around with mechanical noises, no sirree bob. This time we have real music.

Wagner… it doesn’t get much real than that. (You know the stuff that Inspector Morse used to listen to.)

So here’s the deal. The CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION is making available a two and half minute section of the Ring cycle. The Ride of the Valkyries to be precise.

Here is the hype…
CBC Radio: Wagner’s Ring – Remix the Ring
  {sadly CBC have deleted this }

You are invited to Remix The Ring! Well, actually just part of it-the famous Ride of the Valkyries. Download the file of Richard Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries and remix it in any way you see fit. Mash it, chop it, layer it, turn it upside down. Your remix can have a dance feel, or be completely avant-garde. Let your imagination be your guide.

About now I should probably do the “We have good news and bad news” bit.

The bad news is that you have to be a Canadian to enter the competition to win the prize.

The good news is… WHO CARES. This is just too silly a premise to go past.

DOwnload the sample do the remix, mash up, exorcise it, whatever. If you send it to me in MP3 at wagnermash@gmail.com by August 21st and I will pick what I think are the best and put them up for you to have a listen to.

No prizes, no guarantees, just silliness. Can’t do better than that.
