Remixing Amiri Baraka's "The Aesthetic," Part 1

Visual remixes by Jordan, Tyreese, and DJ of John Tyler Christopher's Black Panther #1 

A couple of weeks ago, I continued working with Jaylen during at East St. Louis Digital Humanities Club -- an after school program giving high school students chances to work with technology. We had previously worked on a remix of a poem by Adrian Matejka. On October 3, we took a look at Amiri Baraka's short poem "The Aesthetic."

After we listened to the poem a few times, Jaylen added beats. I encouraged him to add a few slight pauses in Baraka;s delivery for emphasis. Next up, we'll work on doing even more with reworking the sounds.
