Mashup Table at Fete des Courts
Mashup, really a tool for digital artists ?
Could mashup (or Mash-up, or remix) become a professional process for digital artists? A mashup table was presented this fall at Fete des Courts (see our paper) but at this time we did see it more as a toy than a professional tool and did'nt mention it in this review. Anyway, the idea is not so new (see the Remix diccan's item).
Butthe publication of a book in the arch-serious Springer Series (see below) could change our mind. This kind of tools, and notably the Mashuptable of Romuald Beugnon and Pierre-Alexandre Vigor, could perhaps open a new track in the development of software and digital art, even though it remains to be proven.
(On the same track, note Mixage Fou, sound creation competition, Jan. 23 to march 5. You have to use the sounds offered in a common database and prodce a short music (80sec.). All techniques are allowed. More information. )
A formal scheme about using mashup, from Trinh. and al, in the Springer book. It could be pertinent to compare this mode of "programming" with the Pure Data language.
