This podcast we were joined by Hatim Belyamani, executive director of remix ←→ culture. Hatim has been making incredible field recordings throughout Morocco in remote locations. (Check out the picture below). He will share these amazing recordings with the WKCR audience and conclude with a live remix of his own.
remix ←→ culture is a nonprofit artist collective committed to growing a conversation between traditional music(ians) and digital remix art(ists). They love folk music traditions that have been evolving for a long time, and so and go find them in remote corners of the world. They make high quality audio and video recordings of their live performances, using several microphones and cameras, each on different instruments. This allows them not only to make beautiful videos of the original performance, but also to then create vide
o remixes of the separate instruments, and bring them to the public via participatory remix experiences.
