I started this post by giving you a look at Bloom, a remixed old Disney montage by artist/musician Pogo. It seems I have been in the dark about his work, and I’m going to revise this post by showing a bunch of his intriguing remixes.
This is the video for my track ‘Bloom’, a patchwork of vocals and musical chords from various Disney films. I recorded the harp sample from ‘Sleeping Beauty’, and a series of chords from ‘A.I: Artificial Intelligence’ to form the base of the chorus. The vocals are sampled from Disney films, each of which are illustrated in this video.
I will say it makes me a bit nostalgic for hand-drawn animation. A lot of the CG/3D animation of today is a bit lacking in soul. That being said, a look at Pixar’s UP! makes a huge case for 3D animation.
Video for my track ‘Upular’, composed using chords, bass notes and vocal samples from the Disney Pixar film ‘Up’
Video for my track ‘Bangarang’. This piece is composed of sounds from the Spielberg classic film ‘Hook’, a sine wave bass, and a few cymbals for extra spice!
