Composing : Remixes: Love 'em or Leave 'em? by Karen E Ross

Remixes: Love 'em or Leave 'em?

I found this awesome compilation of remixed themes from Avatar: The Last Airbender. I absolutely fell in love with the first one.

But I have to ask - as a composer, do you find it flattering when someone wants to remix your stuff or insulting? Do you listen to any yourself?

More of a visual remix than musical if that counts, but several people have taken my song "The Hubba Hubba Hula" from AMERICAN DRAGON: JAKE LONG and edited Zuko from AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER to make it look like he's singing it. Jake and Zuko were both played by Dante Basco, so it's a chance to hear Zuko sing. : ) I love seeing those pop up on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5V4cb4hAT94

EDIT: While I was looking for the Jake/Zuko version I found a cover of the song itself. So cool! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KppYGdUv6NA

Grace Yee Right?! It's hard for me to not get misty with that African thumb piano as Aang's theme. So touching, no matter what beat you put it to.

OMG Jonathan Price That Hubba Hubba one is hilarious!

Hey! I find it flattering when someone creates their own version of a piece that I composed, it hasn’t happened much for me and I guess it will also depend on the composer.
