Biography

Unfortunately Last.fm doesn’t have disambiguation features yet. and there are two artists here using the name Eridanus. One is a metal band. The other is an electronic mash-up artist. It’s not too difficult to figure out which is which. Play nice until Last.fm gets their act together.

Bio for Eridanus, the electronic mash-up artist:
In January 2008, a Michigan man in his mid-twenties discovered a digital DJ utility. What started as amateur fiddling soon became a large-scale mash-up project. By April, this album was born.

This is an interpretation of original works, not a replacement for them. Most combinations arose spontaneously through improvised mixes. Positive matches were then grouped together and tested for compatibility. Nothing has been perfected or mastered.

Each of these songs carries a built-in illusion. They each fit in some way, large or small, into the patchwork of our culture. This project is an experiment to remix that culture – not just to remix the songs. They really shouldn’t even be called remixes, mash-ups, or any other inane categorization. The songs themselves are not altered from their original state. They are just set against other songs – like photos cut and pasted into a collage. You might have never even heard some before. Others might be so ingrained in your psyche that they shoot you back to a very specific time and place, maybe even a certain date in history.
