Remixer #22 Isosine: “We’re a multimedia generation”



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

Isosine is a remix producer and mashup artist. The mashups are all completely free and will always be available for free download. The works can be found on isosine.com and other platforms such as YouTube or Soundcloud.

How would you describe your artistic work in your own words?

I make mashups, which are a combination of two or more separate musical (but not always) recordings combined into one cohesive mix. This gives me the opportunity to recontextualize or juxtapose different elements of different songs. It’s really interesting and fun in general because mashups are so easily enjoyable and I think everyone likes to be surprised every once in a while.

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

Not worrying what people think makes a good remix. Taking chances makes a good remix. Ignoring the “rules” makes a good remix because, realistically, there are no rules. I think occasionally venturing out into new territory is a good thing and helps music evolve.
