Ultras Mashup Davide Tidoni 2015
Ultras Mashup consists of a series of audio tracks in which football chants are mixed together with the “original” music they are based on.
The work reflects on the creative aspects of football culture and the reappropriation of pop(ular) music.
The work includes “repurposed” versions of Giuseppe Verdi’s opera theme Aida, Walt Disney’s Robin Hood, Jewish traditional song Gam Gam, Marcella Bella’s classic Montagne Verdi and northern italian song La Mula de Parensio.
The chants come from recordings that I did with the ultras group Brescia 1911.
