On Tuesday, January 3rd 2017, Louisville's hip hop artist Jecorey "1200" teamed up with Ableton Music Producer Instructor -Dan Giffin from The Lodge Academy. The two artists were given 4 hours to write an original song that used sections from Richard Strauss' classical symphony tune Eine Alpensinfonie. The collaboration was put together by the organization Remix The Symphony, a group that brings together urban producers to remix classical orchestral music.
The track will debut at Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra's Music of the Earth Festival on Friday, January 20th. You can purchase tickets to Music of the Earth for 50% off with code REMIX50 by clicking HERE.
