Transcript of VARIATIONS #4, by Jon Leidecker ☞

VARIATIONS <http://rwm.macba.cat/en/variations_tag/>, led by *Jon
Leidecker*reconstructs the history of sound appropriationism by
looking at examples
from 20th century composition, popular art and commercial media, and the
convergence of all these trends today.

*VARIATIONS #4. The Explosion*


The late seventies saw the experimental tradition of collage continue in the
form of industrial music and the cassette underground. But it took the
sudden emergence of hip-hop culture for collage to make inroads towards the
form of popular music, as DJs in the Bronx developed the mixer and the
turntable into performative musical instruments for the stage. At the same
time, academic and commercial firms brought a new and steadily more
affordable device to the marketplace: a keyboard based, computer controlled
instrument that came to be known as the Digital Sampler. Separate threads
from different cultural backgrounds, traced as they rise to converge.
