The song remains the same

Kirby Ferguson, 2010

Part 1: The song remains the same, is the first episode of the four-part video series Everything is a remix, made by New York based filmmaker Kirby Ferguson. In the series he explores the history of copying, transforming and combining, and does so with the thesis that everything in fact is a remix.

In the first episode we get to know a bit more about the history of remixing in music, with examples ranging from Sugarhill Gang to Led Zeppelin.
