History of sampling (java applet), DJ Spooky on remixing, HFStival set times, Dave Chappelle's issues

  • Boing Boing: Music sampling's history, visualized
    Very nifty and informative Java applet.
  • DJ Spooky Talks About Remixing
    An interesting excerpt:
    Take for example James Joyce. He would take motifs from posters in the city streets when he was walking and have a notepad and write them down, and they would appear in his book. He would sample stuff from advertising, from other authors, from magazine articles.

    Or Gertrude Stein, because she had this repetitive style of speaking and her writing reflected that; Antonin Artaud, because he was involved with a lot of theater scripting.

    To me, with hip-hop and electronic music, you are looking at sound as a kind of theater, where samples are almost like voices that you can take from a script.... Pretty much everybody on (the record) was involved in some way, shape or form with creating a critique of literature and how stories were told.
