Noah, Alex, Jeremy, and Kyle, who are regulars of our Teen Tuesdays program at South Shore Cultural Center, remixed Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Goin’ On” to make their own version, which addresses similar topics of the original produced 40 years ago. Stems were taken from http://www.whatsgoingonnow.org/
The theme for CPD programming this summer is “Healthy Living”. IMRS interviewed Seniors from the Line Dancing Clubs at South Shore Cultural Center and Washington Park, asking for their wisdom on the subject. Kyle and Salim, two regulars at our Teen Tuesday evening program, sampled these recordings and made a beat. Thus, an Intergenerational Remix is born!
Continuing to keep tracks relevant, Alex used the occasion of Disability Awareness Week at his high school to make an original track with the SSCC Teen Tuesday Crew in hopes of getting the track played during the morning assembly for next year’s week recognizing those of us with disabilities. Alex and Jeremy constructed the beat. The order of vocalists is as follows: Alex(&chorus)//Noah//Kyle//Jeremy//Jayve(instructor)
The whole song was constructed (in 3 one-hour sessions) on the iPad2 with Beatmaker2 and the iRig mic for vocals.
