BBC 3 – Beethoven Remixed Challenge
What music would you make if you had access to the same instruments as Beethoven? Well, to celebrate 250 years since the great man’s birth, you can find out.
For the first time ever, Radio 3 and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales have recorded the first movement of Beethoven’s iconic Fifth Symphony in separate sections so that you can download, edit, LOOP, PLAY and REMIX Ludwig’s work yourself.
- Want to loop the flutes over a beat made of cello stabs and timpani? You can.
- Want to create the first ever bassoon-based dance record? You can.
- Want to create a chill-out record featuring violas and french horns? You can.
Just DOWNLOAD the Beethoven tracks from this web page and start playing.
WATCH tutorials from UK hip hop producer Ocean, and Welsh electronic producer Rachel K Collier as they show you how to remix the Fifth using some of the most readily available remix software – and BE INSPIRED by remixes from some of the most exciting musicians in the UK as they see what they can do with the same elements as Beethoven.
Then, you can UPLOAD your mixes via the BBC uploader here. We’ll listen to all the uploads and some will be chosen for broadcast on BBC radio networks.
- You must be a UK resident.
- You’ll be able to upload your remix until 5pm on 10 December 2020.
