A remix is a piece of media which has been altered or contorted from its original state by adding, removing, and changing pieces of the item. A song, piece of artwork, books, video, poem, or photograph can all be remixes. The only characteristic of a remix is that it appropriates and changes other materials to create something new.
Remixing techniques developed in parallel with the improvement of sound recording equipment. In the future, a whole direction appeared, which was engaged in obtaining new audio products by processing on modern equipment musical material recorded in original recording studios in an outdated way. This led to the development of new aspects of sound and the improvement of the quality of well-known popular works through the use of the latest advances in sound processing techniques, new effects and compensation for quality losses when using outdated media and methods.
Who makes remixes
Remixes are done by the authors themselves (copyright owners or owners of the original musical material) or specialists (commissioned by authors or rights holders). Remixes are also produced by composers and DJs, or just music lovers (since with the development of computers it became possible to remix at home).
A lyric video is one in which the words to the song are the main element of the video. Lyric videos rose to prominence in the 2010s, with it becoming relatively easy for artists to disperse videos through websites such as YouTube. Many do not even feature any visual related to the musician in question, but merely a background with the lyrics appearing over them as they are sung in the song. As such, they are often created with relative ease, and often act as a supplemental video to a more traditional music video. Despite its rise to prominence in the 2010s, the idea had still been used much earlier.
