What does it all mean?
In many ways, today's remix culture
kicked off in earnest one weekend in 1983 when two ad men
(one a recording engineer
) spent a weekend in a studio crafting the first pop record made up entirely of samples
in the hopes of winning a $100 remix contest. [more inside]
HEY! That's illegal!
Aw, yeah the motherlode of illegality. The organizers of this exhibit seem to get it all right. The website doesn't skimp on the source material either. Wanna see George Bush wreak havoc on the Teletubbies bunnies? It's here
. Wanna see Wally Wood's (Of The Realist
) version of a Disneyland orgy? It's here
. Public Enemy sampled the Beatles but pulled the song because the licence fees were insane, listen to it here
. Also, don't skip over the "contract" that pops up when you enter the site, it's classic.
