Music Monday: Pogo

Billy introduced me to this artist, who creates wonderful electronic music from samples, often gleaned from popular movies. He edits videos to go along with the music, combining the source of the samples with imagery to set the perfect mood. My favorite songs are created from "real life" samples, like this one of his mother's garden:

"Gardyn" by Pogo

Or this one from his travels in Johannesburg:
"Joburg Jam" by Pogo

And here is one of his movie remixes, from the Pixar movie "Up":
"UPular" by Pogo

Look him up on youtube to see more videos; there are lots of great movie remixes (including "The Lord of the Rings"!). Also, check him out at to read more about him, about his World Remix Project, and to purchase some of his tracks.

great finds thanks for introducing me to them.
The Pixar one has me wondering about the copyright lawyers. Have you read "Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy"? It's a good book on the subject.
