SYPC Mobile Mashup course launch with miniMIXA

Posted by Tim Cole on March 26th, 2007

On Saturday I was at the Slough Young People’s Center (SYPC) launch of their 6 MOBILE MASHUP courses. One of these is music mixing with miniMIXA. It was an interesting afternoon and DJ Spencer Lowe had created some drum loops that he was trying out, and various MCs including PanicPhaze joined in. Tao have a press release about the collabaration with SYPC here.

We were lucky to have Nadia from Radio 1Extra come to check out the course start and interview DJ Spencer Lowe and MC PanicPhaze. She also interviewed someone signing up for the course, and the SYPC Center Manager. Nadia’s report is being broadcast on Radio 1 today at 2:40pm, after the entertainment section (was around 3pm).

Here is the link to the 1Extra Homepage, click on the ‘Listen Live – Real’ link to tune in to the station: http://www.bbc.co.uk/1xtra/

Here is a picture of Nadia interviewing Spence, who is explaining how miniMIXA works.

I made a short video clip of the initial performance setup, and then where DJ Spencer Lowe and MC PanicPhaze were briefly showing Nadia the software (I did not make clips of the performance and audience though). l put something together and have uploaded it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-nqTef3j30
