Classical-Modern Mashup

For this assignment I took a new music video by Little Mix, Woman Like Me, took away the audio and added the Clair De Lune piano piece. I though their music video, which had both modern outfits and an old-fashion/classical locations and scenes.


Originally the video would …

I Like It Like That

For this assignment, I was supposed to mash up a classic song with a modern day one. Recently, I have gotten very into the song I Like It Like That by Perry Como, which apparently has a new version by Cardi B. So naturally I chose these two! I downloaded …

Classical-Modern Mashup with Dytto and Tchaikovsky

If you’ve never seen Dytto, you’re missing out. I swear this chick is part robot. I love when an artist is able to take a concept and just run with it. She can dance like… well… I’m not sure quite how to describe it. Just take a look.

Sia and Beethoven

One of the assignments I chose to do this week was Classic-Modern Mashup, worth 4.5 stars. The goal of this assignment was to take a modern music video and combine it with a classical composition.

Classical Mash Up

For the Classical Music Video Mashup, I used Blink 182’s video for “What’s My Age Again?” with Offenbach’s “Infernal Gallop” (often misnamed The Can Can). Even while reading the assignment description, I had the idea of putting these two together. I used iMovie to line up the music with …

Classic Macklemore

This is Macklemore prancing Downtown with Eric Nally and others as he clearly gets in tune with his classical side.

Video Assignment #3

The assignment was Classical-Modern mashup. After searching for a video that won’t get blocked for copyright issues I landed on a music video by Justin Timberlake. I then chose the song Mozart Symphony #40 as the Classical piece. It was pretty tricky timing the song and video so that it …

Music Mixup Mash: Waltzing “on My Own”

(…Why did this embed so big??)

For the 4 1/2 star “Classical-Modern Mashup” assignment, I mixed the music video to Robyn’s “Dancing on My Own” with Chopin’s Waltz No. 12. This one was pretty hard; the rating is maybe a bit high, but far more accurate than other ratings I’ve …

Classical-Modern Mashup

This assign was a lot of fun. I had to take a pop song and put a classical song over it to make it look like the pop artist was dancing to the classical music. Here is the video that I produced

Classical-Modern Mashup

For the first assignment this week I did a a mashup between the 24k music video and the classical song Hoe-down. The assignment is worth 4.5 stars and can be found here:

Classical Sia

I always enjoy the mashup video projects, so I decided to try the classical mashup assignment.  I chose Sia’s new music video The Greatest as my visual content.  Since the tone of the videos is more dire (as it is a tribute to the Orlando victims) I chose to …

Who Run The Overture!

Shake It Off with Classic Music!

Have you seen the latest viral video of Taylor Swift? She’s dancing to some Classical music and it fits surprisingly well! Both her and the background dancer. I wonder why she decided to take up Classical music instead of continuing what she was doing before. Maybe she is onto something …

Irony Has a New Name

I’m not sure if the world of ballet is ready.  But with Christmas fast approaching a certain someone thought it best to try her hand.  If you feel yourself a bit ill watching, perhaps it’s best to just shake it off.

Then there’s the wonderful DMCA.

downton ab(beyonce)

Mashups? Ummm, yes, please. As a hungry hungry pop culture consumer, I love seeing my favorites all smooshed up together. For this video assignment, I put together the Downton Abbey theme and Beyonce’s music video for 711.

I loved Downton Abbey when it was on, and I have to admit …
