9: A Haiku Remix

Below is the link to my digital remix:



I wanted to engage with the age-old concept of poetry and song lyrics being intersecting genres, if not sometimes the same thing. I worked together with Alex, and together we chose several pop songs to remix. While Alex’s focused on the chord progression and musical similarities of the songs, I chose to remix the lyrics into something still songlike, but using pieces from each to create a new piece of poetic art out of the scope of the pop song, while still highlighting the intersection of genres. The audience, on a basic level, would be people interested in songs, poems, or both. The purpose (again, in a basic sense) was to highlight the similarities in these genres while still showcasing the differences. I anticipate that this text might circulate best on a social media site, where online poetry and song lyric posts and videos are very commonly encountered.
