Getting a Little Kick Out of Making Videos From Archive.org
As a summer Project, I recorded some 20th and 21st Century piano music as examples for my beginning music students. I have made the recordings available to them as examples. I’m kind of getting a kick out of making little music videos with public domain or creative commons licensed video. I’ll post more as I make them.
in the two videos that include toy piano, I played a fragment of John Cage’s “Dream” with a piezo microphone attached. One video is of the resulting electronic manipulation from Pure Data on my iPhone. The other is the recombined acoustic recording with the simultaneous electronic filters. The video is a creative commons licensed clip hosted on Archive.org. it is specifically licensed for remixing as long as the resulting output is non-profit and also creative commons licensed.
The last video is music by Arvo Part with clips of a wonderful early “Alice in Wonderland” movie.
