ccMixter member PorchCat took it upon himself to create a series of events at ccMixter called “Secret Mixter” in which participants pull names out of virtual hat and are assigned to create a remix feature that artist. On a prearranged day everybody uploads their “secret remixes.” The upload day for the third installation “SecretMixter III: Splice Madness” was yesterday and entries have already been picked up by davi roque de souza‘s online mix-tape site músicalivre as “ccMixTape 007“. PorchCat has threatened to hold more Secret Mixters in the near future, watch the ccMixter forums for word.
Will SecretMixter ever become an “official” ccMixter event? Considering I am not eligible to participate in any “official” ccMixter remixing contest or event (something I wish I would have thought of before joining the ccMixter project) the short answer is: not if I have anything to say about it.
