Iris Playlist One: Study Sessions!
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!
