Switzerland (1989)

World Music


Once a month, the Biel based artist mixes international news excerpts to reveal their sound dimension. The result is a series of 1.5-minute long video clips broadcast during the show 26 Minutes on Swiss Television. Cee-Roo digests this flow of images in the form of mash-ups of news, sports events and videos trending on YouTube, over which he creates a melody by sampling their sounds and comments. Through this process, he is able to highlight the musical aspect of the moments that made the news. The installation presents the full first season of these video clips.
