Pogo: Remixing Real Life And Fantasy
The audiovisual artist best known for his rework of Alice In Wonderland has created a new piece.
Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, Nick ‘Pogo’ Bertke is an electronic music producer who samples and remixes films, piecing together small sounds to create entirely new pieces of music. Building tracks from children’s classics such as Hook, The King and I, The Secret Garden, Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory, Harry Potter and Up, Pogo is best known for his Alice in Wonderland track which received over four-million hits on YouTube by December 2009.
The Australian artist recently created his first track from the ‘real world’, with Gardyn – a piece which makes use of his mother’s voice and sounds from her garden.
