New Videos I have made, timelapses from Icelandic volcanoes and a long ambient video from Antarctica

I do not think I will be making any mashups soon  again. I have been busy though with some video.

From my sailing trip to Antarctica in 2012 I made a video with very long shots and using Brian Eno's entire Apollo soundtrack as ambient music background. It is a slow video, take your time to view this.

Recently I got interested in an Icelandic volcano, the Bardarbunga that started to erupt in view of some webcams. I started making screenshots from this and got the idea to make timelapse videos, some of those with music. Here a few:

With music from the video game Mass Effect, 'Vigil' by Jack Wall and Sam Hulick and the track 'Sudden Throw' by Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds.

The first one I made with music,the songs Fyrsta and Only The Winds by Ólafur Arnalds

And a few others without sound:

Gybo closes and a sideblog

A little while ago I received the message that primary mashupforum GYBO (Get Your Bootleg On) is closing due to pressure from copyright enforcing regulations.

GYBo was one of the first sites that dealt with mashups and more than one noteable mashup had it's origins on this board. But it was more than just a music site. A remarkable group of people from all over the world gathered here and shared their ideas, helped each other with their musical struggles and were discussing everything you could think about with an open mind and it hardly ever ended in shouting contests.

GYBO has been and will remain a special piece in my heart and it will be missed.

A heartfelt thank you for the good times provided.

On some other news.

Probably you have noticed I haven't been making mashups in quite a while.

The reason for this is that I had made a journey to Antarctica in February, on a sailing ship, the Bark Europa. I have finally finished editing and sorting out the thousands of photos and just opened a blog for this.

Sympathy For A Stray Devil (Rolling Stones vs Akira Yamaoka)

This mashup I had put aside for several months, as a concept probably never not to be finished,
However when I relistened to it was better than I remembered it and I decided to finish it. Though I am not entirely satisfied I decided to release it, or it will bother me forever.
It features the Rolling Stones on vocals and a favourite staple of mine, Akira Yamaoka, on everything else.

An Ordinary Fantasy - John Legend vs Nobuo Uematsu

This mashup features a track that is well known to most gamers, the prelude from Final Fantasy VII.
It's not the original though but the orchestral version as performed by The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Wolf And The Ripper (Fever Ray vs Nick Cave)

It's been almost a year since I made a mashup.
Here's finally a new one.
It's based on the brilliant dark brooding new track from Fever Ray and the always dark and menacing Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds.

The Rocking Cumbia Machine (Kraftwerk, El Remolón, Steve Miller Band)

This tune is a reworked track of one of my entries to the Gybo Weekend challenges.
I changed a lot compared to that entry, notably I added a vocoder to Steve Millers voice and resturctured the backing track so that there would be less clashing vocals,
I also made a version with almost no Steve Miller in it (the inhuman mix).

The Rocking Cumbia Machine:

Kraftwerk - The Man-Machine
El Remolón - Cumbia Bichera

Steve Miller Band - Rock N Me
