In week three we were encouraged to create our own remixed audio piece using existing content. Through the audio editing program Audacity, this enabled us to become content creators by using what already existed, changing it slightly and making it something new. The idea of remixing does have copyright issues, however remixing should be seen in a positive light. It’s innovative with influence and it is easy to do.
It seems unharmful because there is no discourse for financial profit over this, however I do see where the issue of copyright infringement can arise. Here is a piece that I have created. I took a drum beat loop, added a background noise from a construction site and used Barack Obama as the accompanying voice. I used the effect Paulstretch on my sampled audio to make them different from the original.
