I am live blogging from the Park Hall Auditorium at Ithaca College, in VJ/DJ Art Jones's master class entitled 'Live Remixing Revisited.' I am eager to learn as much as possible from his discussion with Dr. Zimmerman. For example:

1) If you are a college freshman, Art Jones has been remixing since the year you were born. 

Before there were computers and iPods, he utilized simple CD players and VHS decks.

2) Art Jones has the smallest DJ mixer in the world - DJ 2 Go.

He bought it just before getting on the bus to Ithaca, because he forgot his regular mixer at home.

3) The world doesn't need more filmmakers.

Or so a teacher once told him. Art uses this as a challenge to create films with meaning.

 4) Remixes are not unlike Baroque scoring and architecture.

Four or more levels are woven and 'built' within a single mix, from still images to text to moving images to animations, and more.

5) Seeing live music is akin to finally seeing a painting in a museum, that you've only seen in books previously.

"There is a huge difference between what you see represented, and what you see being there."
