Girl Talk shows us how it's done
Girl Talk (aka Greg Gillis) gets a fair amount of love here at Westword for his ace mashup skills and incendiary live performances, and with good reason: the man is an artist at what he does. And if you've ever wondered exactly how he does what he does, today is your lucky day, because I've found this video where he walks us through a quick and dirty primer of how he creates his artful mashups. It's not detailed enough that you could easily copy it, but he does give a nice amount of detail on the math behind it, and it's enough to inspire and give a few tips. Click through the jump to watch, I've got to go fire up my DAW and start ripping up an old Cure song... -- Cory Casciato
