The series “Remixer” features interviews with people involved in remix practices and culture, asking them about their experiences and approaches towards remix. This time: Alexander Støver.

Alexander Støver describes himself as “a robot sent from the future to destroy the popollution.” All his work is free and acts as a critique on the current state of popular music.

From your point of view, what makes a great remix?

The same story being told from a different perspective. A great remix pays homage to the original while at the same time bringing something new to the equation.

How do you use or re-use works of others in your own works?

Subconsciously I use the work of others in every aspect of my production. If I am making a remix I try to identify what the original was trying to convey and work from there.

Have you ever abstained from using a work because of legal issues and why?

Yes, because I don’t have that kind of money.
