Sound Advice: Mute This, Play That

The Strut, Mute This Play That

In April, The Strut introduced a segment on their website called Mute This, Play That. Just as the name suggests, it’s about muting audio from one source and turning up audio from another.

The results are always a pleasing blend of video visuals and complementary audio.

So far, Strut has mashed together Beyoncé and Bollywood (seems like a natural pair, to be honest); Phantogram and slow-motion sports shots (a personal favorite); Twin Shadow and shadows of skateboarders (we see what they did there); Metric and falling runway models (an unexpected, but delightful pairing); and Killer Mike and Michael Jordan (we can all admit that Michael Jordan was a “big beast” on the court).

Check out all of their compilations here.
