Elevator Music 6: SilvaGunner, curated by Juno Zago, invites visitors to step inside an early-1900s refurbished Otis Elevator and experience the work of the SilvaGunner collective: remixes of both classic and new video game soundtracks.
SiIvaGunner is a YouTube channel that claims to “only upload high quality video game rips” (rips = music files extracted straight from the game itself). In reality, SiIvaGunner uploads remixes of video game music, advertising them as the original tracks. There is a plethora of artists behind the 10,000+ uploads on the channel, pooling their creative interests and talents into a non-profit project out of their spare time. The remixes can range from well known pop songs to obscure inside jokes, and even original compositions!
