Milestones in Music - Pop eats itself: The Impact of the Sampler
Monday, 28 July 2014 at 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
ANU School of Music, Lecture Theatre 3 - Level 5
This lecture considers the impact of the sampler and questions surrounding legality, performance and technology, authenticity and quotation. How has the sampler prioritised Black music history in a dominant, Anglo-American popular music industry? To what extent is a soul and funk canon mediated via house and hip hop musicality? Is it possible to make sample-heavy records, such as Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique and De La Soul's 3 Feet High and Rising, today? And how do contemporary 'replay' and 'allusion' techniques overcome legal boundaries?

To Let the World In: Vol. 1 is part of a two-film project that reflects on the work of three generations of visual artists in India. The film chronicles the spirit and legacy of the Narrative-Figurative movement initiated by a group of artists and a critic in the late 1970s. They sought to explore the particularities of locality, gender and politics in a postmodernist vein, moving away from the master narratives of national and international high modernism.
