So this is the remix of Alex Day’s “Forever Yours” that I made [his original is here]. I’m going to release it on iTunes this weekend to coincide with the Project 4 Awesome and Forever Day. The remix will cost 99 cents and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to VH1’s Save The Music (my charity of choice for the last few P4As). So, I do hope you enjoy it, and I do hope you’ll purchase it this weekend so we can all help put some new instruments and music software into our schools. =)
The entire remix was reprogrammed in Logic using only the bundled instruments. No loops or samples (outside of the multitracks from Alex’s original recording, of course) were used. In fact, I spent more time producing this remix than Alex did writing and recording his original version. Not sure who that speaks more highly of. LOL
“Belyaev’s Foxes“ is still my favorite example of this, since it shows that theres a distinct physiological change that occurs with ‘tameability’. Think I’ve linked it before, but check it out again anyhoo!
If you haven’t checked out these classic Soviet experiments on the domesticated silver fox, then watch this video:
“And while the fossil record tells us that biodiversity has always recovered, it also tells us that the recovery will be unbearably slow in human terms — 5 to 10 million years after the mass extinctions of the past. That’s more than 200,000 generations of humankind before levels of biodiversity comparable to those we inherited might be restored.” - The Current Mass Extinction
Looking up more resources on extinction; 200 seems an huge estimate, but they seem to range from 75 animal extinctions a day, to almost 400 animal extinctions a day.
