Our road trip next month across USA needs a theme song. I had already been thinking about “Butterflies and Hurricanes” by the English band “Muse” because we will start in Houston – with people affected by the recent Hurricane Katrina, and because there is a butterfly-like quality to our tour – fluttering lightly across USA, making tiny invisible waves that may one day have a huge effect. If anyone out there wanted to remix this song, we would love to use it. Even better if we could remix it again while we travel and mix in some sounds from our journey.
Another interesting sideline. The producer of this song was in Orkney last year and hooked up with Michael who was here on Sunday.
Tell you more about this song . . .
Today is the one year anniversary of Butterflies and Hurricanes, released in u-myx format on Sep 20, 2004. Remixing or remashing was encouraged and Muse provided the software for anyone to do it through U-Myx. What i am thinking about is this: How could we make U-Myx kinds of books . . and movies. Could we do our tour in a way that allows anyone to take our words, sounds and images and make their own media from it? Can we build into our media the ability to do that without being a geek?
