Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin Get Mashed With ‘Inception’
A digital artist from Ithaca Audio has taken clips from Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Phil Collins and 11 other artists and mashed them into a new song called 'Walking In Your Mind' featuring scenes from last year's hit film 'Inception' and other visual sources. In the video below, watch "Chris" produce the mashup live with his controls in the lower right of the screen.
Hendrix is the first classic rocker featured. The opening guitar riff of 'Voodoo Child' is repeated over and over again, and viewers watch as the guitar legend plays it live. Grainy live footage of Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love' is used later in the song, although it's a challenge to decipher that classic riff from the other samples used in the mashup at that point.
Collins' hit 'In the Air Tonight' is sampled heavily in the middle of the over three minute long song. Images from a 2007 Cadbury chocolates commercial provide the video's most striking images. Clips from the Leonardo DiCaprio movie 'Inception' are also sampled early on. The Beastie Boys, Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg are amongst the other artists whose songs are sampled. Ithaca Audio is offering a free audio download of their song on their Facebook page.
