OIID!

”When the remix is better than the original”

(Excerpt from leading Norwegian business daily DN, written by music journalist Audun Vinger 29 April 2016, translated by Th Selvik)

…when Kanye West on February 14 in a subtile way informed that the album, “The Life Of Pablo” was not ready after all, this was a new key incident in the history of remixing. The day before the album was recorded, mixed and ready for digital launch, but West had a sudden feeling that a lot could be done differently with a central song on the album, “Wolves”. The song, co-produced by Norwegian, Casmere Cat, was quickly reorganized. The vocal tracks by Vic Mensa and Sia were deleted and replaced with lyrics by the brilliant Frank Ocean. The song was sequenced differently, and Kanye West thus remixed the song – before it was issued.

This depicts how there is a dynamic view on the album format, a format going through a revolutionary change. It also describes how a song is really never complete anymore. A month later West altered the album and put the song back on. Thus music becomes a soft lump of silicone,that can be shaped to some extent along the way, and not a creative truth carved in stone. And – as is the case in many other walks of life these days – increasingly the commercial power is shifted towards the customer and the public.  The recruitment to the upper echelons of pop music has lately been private people’s remixes of famous songs. These remixes have slowly grown to success on websites such as Soundcloud and othere places where new music is shared. Norwegian artist Kygo is one of these players. The way he interpreted and mixed a song like Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire” and later Seinabo Sey’s “Younger” was instrumental in re-establishing the  tropical house genre and in launching the Kygo sound. He also helps make the original artists more popular than they would have been without his playing around in the metaphorical teenage bedroom.

A few days agi DN wrote about the international launch of the Norwegian app, oiid. Oiid will be presented in the United States this Saturday – and even to the Obamas in the White House as part of “International Jazz Day”. In its way oiid will bring thje remixing culture into people’s homes in a big way. Oiid consists of a tool set and a music format rendering it possible for the user to isolate each instrument and/or the vocal tracks of the song. Play drum and bass alone, or totally remove the vocals. In fact it feels like sitting by the soundboard and mixer and move the volume levers up and down for each track, in the same way producers and engineers for a long time have done in “The Making Of…” documentaries about classic pop albums. 

Resembling examples have for quite some time circulated online among music freaks. We could listen to isolated vocals of the wildest Beatles songs, thus portrayed in a complete new way, or the recent analysis of Toto’s “Rosanna, revealing how amazingly detailed the pop classic is constructed – instrument by instrument. This technology is really eye and ear opening. The scope and possibilities of the oiid, where the public will experience their favorite music in a complete new way, may soon turn into a dramatic new music format for music aficionados  – and others. And not least: The oiid  will mean a new way for record companies and artists to sell their music. For some of us this will mean the fourth of fifth time we buy the songs, a really attractive business for the sellers! Until noe the oiid is primarily meant to be a consumer product for play and entertainment – the mixes one constructs cannot be shared or resold, but it is of course only a question of time before these limitations are gone. Nonetheless the principle remains: the consumer are able to make their own mixes based on raw material from the master tapes. This implies that the next George Martin or Max Martin will be found just as likely among the public as among the established music stars. An open-minded approach regarding the future is that songs will be offered to consumers who on their part remix, where one of these mixes are accepted as the final cut.

Remixing has of course since long been established as a central element in modern music. 70ies disco music and ensuing electronically based genres, all stem from remix thinking where instruments, elements and parts of the song were radically changed to function optimally on the dance floors. The given structure with verse, chorus and melodic focus, was no longer as central.  One essential figure in the development of electronic dance music is the DJ and produces Larry Levan working in the Paradise Garage club in Manhattan.  His eclectic selection of music became a genre all to itself, and he offered tailor-made remixes for his audience. Instruments were isolated, dub effects added rendering some really original song constructions. Some of his central work as remixer and studio producer have just been issued on a double-CD, “Genius Of Time”. The name Larry Levan is remendered as fondly as the music he played and remixed.
