Whatever Paper Planes You Like

November 30th, 2008 by

You can have whatever paper planes you like. I can make the triangle-winged jet, or the square-winged cargo plane. I can’t make you a paper football though. In lieu of a paper football please accept this mashup that I created:

Whatever Paper Planes You Like

This is just an instrumental and an a capella track. Most of the work in making mashups is finding the tracks in the first place. I spent a really long time looking for the champagne sound.

I find that making mashups is a good way to surprise yourself. After placing two waveforms together on beat there are often some good unintended consequences that happen later on in the song. For example, listen to 1:48 in this song. I didn’t plan for that little event to happen. I find the musical ideas that emerge when making mashups very fun and interesting. 

Historical note: I made this mashup before I ever heard Swagger Like Us.

    This is an awesome mashup. I noticed though that there’s a bit of key-clashing with the vocals at some parts. What about using autotune to force MIA into the right scale? Just an idea. Keep up the hot jams.

    Def on my play list for party times.
