This week's challenge comes to us all the way from Aotearoa New Zealand! Ivy's friends Glass Vaults and Instant Fantasy have very kindly shared their track 'Pure Imagination' for our remixing pleasure!
Instant Fantasy is the musical username of queer artist Gemma Syme. She released The Wet EP in 2015; songs about tears, getting moist and that sweat you forgot about that happens when you sleep next to another person. Though the songs are sad they give a sense of freedom; post-orgasm after breaking up with someone. It’s all gold for this synth drone ego-miner. She is currently spending time recording streams, prayers through walls, and pipes that play ancient wisdoms on her zoom recorder. Glass Vaults are Richard Larsen, Bevan Smith, Rowan Pierce, Cory Champion, Ben Lemi and a growing array of collaborators. Since their conception in 2010, they have produced a stream of releases and transcendental live performances, developing into a unique brand of swirling low-fi disco.
This week's challenge is to use at least some of the sounds from the original track, plus any other sounds or synths that you like, to make a remix of their track Pure Imagination.
Upload your track to THIS GOOGLE DRIVE by 20:30 Berlin time, and rejoin the zoom call from 21:00 for our listening session.
Here's what we made!
