Remix Theory: the aesthetics of sampling
(50 items available)
An analysis of remix in art, music, and new media. Navas argues that remix, as a form of discourse, affects culture in ways that go beyond the basic recombination of material. His investigation locates the roots of Remix in early forms of mechanical reproduction, in seven stages, beginning in the nineteenth century with the development of the photo camera and the phonograph, leading to contemporary remix culture. This book places particular emphasis on the rise of Remix in music during the 1970s and '80s in relation to art and media at the beginning of the twenty-first Century. Remix is a binder, a cultural glue that informs and supports contemporary culture.
