When Gregg Gillis takes the stage, he's accompanied by two industrial grade laptops, thirty or so fans, and lots of confetti. It's all part of his music project he calls '"Girl Talk". For the past decade, Gillis, a 29-year-old Pittsburgh native, has been remixing popular songs from the 1960's to present day, isolating different beats, slowing them down, speeding them up, and mixing them back together again to create something new. Gillis is a mashup artist, and his laptops are his primary tools. Gillis talked to Art Beat about his project before a show at Washington DC's 930 Club in February.
