Kenneth recommended this documentary on the artistic challenges involved with today’s piracy laws and their impact on mashups and remixes earlier today. I checked it out. Very cool.

The full documentary is an hour long.

The stuff being done in Brazil was particularly cool. Turning out remixes for night clubs for free just to draw people in. No foreseen revenue for the CD itself.

One of the lamest things about commercial radio today is the complete lack of variety of a given song. Maybe there will be a formulaic dance remix version played on weekend nights, but where is the creativity? Why can’t I hear a popular song played a zillion different ways?
