NYO: Our Musical Planet - Create an electronic remix of 'Jupiter'

Of all the millions of musicians on our musical planet, not all of you play an instrument. There's so many different styles of music out there and we want to hear from all of you, especially if you create music electronically.


If you write music on your phone or computer, we're inviting you to create a remix of the theme from 'Jupiter' from Holst's The Planets. NYO musicians have recorded loads of sounds on their instruments for you to remix, taken from the original orchestral piece. And the rest... is up to you!


NYO Composer Lizzy Gur, who was in NYO from 2016-19, has created this video to give you an idea, as well as creating three remixes for you to listen to.



You can download all the resources from this Dropbox link.



You can also download all the sounds, and remix them using whatever software you normally use. (If you've never remixed anything electronically before and would like to have a go, you can download lots of them for free: Audacity, Garageband, Sampler or Koala are a few examples).


Get creative, and share your video on social media at 5:00pm on Friday 29 May with the hashtag #NYOMusicalPlanet: we're also encouraging singers to sing, live, and instrumentalists to play, live, so no matter your instrument or no matter what standard you are, we want to make sure music is living and breathing at the heart of our local communities.
