World Music of the Day: World-renowned sound remixer Nick “Pogo” Bertke is working on a new project — and he needs your help.
For “World Remix,” Pogo plans to travel the world Matt Harding-style, collecting sight and sounds as he goes, with the ultimate goal being “to compose and shoot a track and video for each major culture of the world.” The project will be funded entirely through pledges submitted via Kickstarter, and released worldwide on CD, DVD, and made available for download on PogoMix.net.
“I am deeply inspired by the films Baraka and Koyaanisqatsi,” Pogo says, “and hope to produce the best cinematography and music I humanely can throughout each project.”
The initial track, “Joburg Jam” — a remix of footage captured around the city of Johannesburg, South Africa — was released today, and is presented above.
