Iris Playlist One: Study Sessions!

October 11, 2012

Carefully selected by Addie Bender.

A calming set of songs, both classical and modern, to get you prepared for the ever-
looming midterm exams. Throw this playlist on and prepare your ears for the
stimulating melodies of Purity Ring, Bonobo, and Grimes.

On a lighter (non-study related!) note, check out this amazing YouTube video by
Australian DJ “Pogo”. He uses sounds selected from a short movie clip (“Up”, “Harry
Potter”, and “Alice in Wonderland”, to name a few!) to make an eclectic, upbeat, and
entirely unique track. Can you believe that these songs are created using only vocal
syllables, musical chords, and sound effects heard in the actual scene? Let us know
in the comments box below!
