Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time.

Wizard of Oz Remix – Mello Brick Road


This great little remix and animation will bring a smile to your face. If your old enough to have synced Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon album to a recording of The Wizard of Oz and tripped out then you will really appreciate this as a complementary vision.

Reed Gauthier is the creative mind behind the animation using Pogo’s remix music. I really like how it captures the innocence of the Wizard of Oz. I remember it being a big deal to gather and watch the movie on television once a year just after or before Halloween. The movie is thought to be the most viewed movie in history.

If you’ve spent any time on the interwebz you’ve probably run into a few Pogo mixes. Pogo? Yes, Pogo. The brilliant re-mixer, known in the real world as Nick Bertke, is the creator of such gems as: ‘Upular‘ (Pixar Remix), ‘Skynet Symphonic‘ and ‘Murmurs of Middle-Earth‘. What Pogo does sounds simple enough, but by sampling hundreds of different movies and television shows he creates phenomenal bits of music. His latest remix might be his best yet.

This is the video for my track ‘Bloom‘, a patchwork of vocals and musical chords from various Disney films. I recorded the harp sample from ‘Sleeping Beauty’, and a series of chords from ‘A.I: Artificial Intelligence’ to form the base of the chorus. The vocals are sampled from Disney films, each of which are illustrated in this video.

It’s Friday morning, you’re groggy, the coffee still hasn’t kicked in. Tune in, drop out and let ‘Bloom’ take you into the weekend.

For other Pogo remixes check out his Youtube page. Personal favorites of mine are, ‘Alice‘ and ‘Toyz Noize.’
