    A video remix journey through the history of sampling taking in some of the most noted breaks and riffs of the decades. A chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it, each re-use another chapter in the modern narrative.

  3. I think it was in the time of spring 2012, when I came across David Shiyang Liu's lovely piece of work about Ira Glass. It was the most inspiring and motivating video I had ever seen in my life. I watched it over and over again, listened to Ira Glass' voice, and told myself, that I am not the only person who is constantly disappointed about the gap between one's taste and one's skills. Later in 2012, I decided to do my own filmed version of Ira's interview - using my own language to tell his message. It took me about a year from concept to upload.

    I made it for myself and for anybody who is in doubt about his/her creative career. I also think that Ira Glass' message isn't only limited to the creative industry. It can be applied to everyone who starts out in a new environment and is willing to improve.

    THANK YOU
    Ira Glass, whom I've never met in real life, but who had such a big influence on my development. Thank you for telling beginners what nobody else does.

    David Shiyang Liu for the video that inspired me to start the project. You all should watch his awesome kineticTypo-version here: vimeo.com/24715531

    Wolfgang Kraus for letting me borrow his sound equipment.
    Kai Löhnert for working out on his birthday in the "fight" take.
    Wolfgang Hendrik Schnabel for giving me the museum-like atmosphere and his silhouette in the painting takes.

    Orange Hive Studio for light equipment and location.
    Mima and Heinz Sax-Schmitz for the location of the "ambitions" take and finding me the "finish 1 story" typewriter.

    Joyce Chen (vimeo.com/clownmori) and Andrej Mikula (amara.org/en/profiles/profile/65015/) for taking the time and patience to create Chinese and Slovak subtitles and dissolving language barriers to make even more people understand Ira's words.

    A SPECIAL THANK YOU
    Solveig Gold for being the most patient and supporting person in my life. She appears in a lot of scenes in this video.
    Jutta and Uwe Sax for several pieces of equipment and their support.
