I should have made it clear that there is a great deal of difference between mixing and producing- Kraftwerk have been remixing their own tunes now for decades, so I guess they are DJ’s, but not strictly.
It is true that you cannot mix tracks together and take credit for the finished piece and call it all your own work, even though the result can sound original (unless you’re remixing your own tracks, then you pretty much take all the credit- like Kraftwerk.)
Most music producers have skill in both mixing and producing. it has become far easier to produce music with the shift from using expensive hardware (which has it’s limitations) and the newer, more advanced software which means that anyone can make music. But not every one can make good music… the genre is massive and each movement within it has it’s own origins and distinctive sound. http://youtu.be/TlDMoI0ExS8
Thanks for the update on this wonderful exhibition. Anyone who had read the works of Joseph Campbell, and in fact any artist for that matter, will appreciate how important the concept of ‘journeying’ is to the individual and humanity as a whole. Congratulations to the four women who have created these beautiful works…and I particularly like Fen the Christmas Fairy!
I have to agree with you Lyall…DJing is an art in itself, no more or less valid than great artists/bands like Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk…there is room for everyone in this great game of music…now i am off to listen to my copy of ‘Phaedra’!
