“ALL ABOUT THAT BASS” (Sung in Cartoon Voices!)
2001 : A Remix
It’s taken me till 2014 to remix 2001, but with the film relaunching in British cinemas, I thought now would be a great time to do it. This mix contains almost every scientific prediction in the film mixed with the space age synth sounds that were just around the corner. Much that Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke predicted has come to pass – touch screen portable computers, video phones, Space Stations, in-seat video entertainment, computers beating humans at chess. So far though, Siri hasn’t switched off anybody’s life support.
The original had minimal dialogue, communicating through moving images. The monolith was built on a 1 : 4 : 9 ratio (the squares of the first three integers), the same ratio as a cinema screen on its side. When the humans/monkeys see the monolith it enlightens them, when the screen goes black, you, the viewer, are now looking at the monolith on it’s side enlightening you. Whether true or not, Kubrick hid many many objects with this ratio throughout the film. The whole film is built on an electro-version of the legendary “Also Sprach Zarathustra” by Richard Strauss.
