Plunderphonics, or Audio Piracy as a Compositional Perogative - Essay - 0 views

  •  
    "Musical instruments produce sounds. Composers produce music. Musical instruments reproduce music. Tape recorders, radios, disc players, etc., reproduce sound. A device such as a wind-up music box produces sound and reproduces music. A phonograph in the hands of a hip hop/scratch artist who plays a record like an electronic washboard with a phonographic needle as a plectrum, produces sounds which are unique and not reproduced - the record player becomes a musical instrument. A sampler, in essence a recording, transforming instrument, is simultaneously a documenting device and a creative device, in effect reducing a distinction manifested by copyright."

A Rough Guide To Musical Anthropology (paper) - 0 views

    "As the world becomes increasingly more connected to media, the consumption of music as cultural goods rises as well. It is speculative to assume that this proven increase in quantity will make music a more central part of peoples' lives, but it will certainly attract more scientific attention to the behavior and perception transformations associated with it."

The remix culture; How the folk process works in the 21st century - 0 views

  •  
    Article from John Egenes at Otago Uni on remix culture.

    "The internet and our digital convergence are
    rapidly transforming long-held views
    regarding the traditional relationship
    between performer and audience ("creator" /
    "consumer"). This change is giving a new
    voice to the audience, literally bringing them
    into the mix. With unprecedented access to
    the creative process, and with an audience for
    their creations, consumers of music are also
    its producers, and are reshaping concepts of
    creativity, individuality, and intellectual
    property. This paper examines fundamental
    shifts in the way the "Folk Process" works
    within this context. Remix culture, once a
    bastion of beat-driven dance mashups, is
    expanding to include all styles of music, film,
    theatre and art. I will argue that its long-term
    significance lies in the notion that it blurs
    lines between the traditionally separate roles
    of creator and consumer, and challenges
    long-held concepts of intellectual property
    and copyright. Over the protests of many
    traditional folk musicians and devotees, folk
    music is entering this new digital arena,
    where the Folk Process is changing from
    gradual to immediate, from slow to rapid,
    adapting to fit the new digital paradigm."

It's Culture, Not Morality :: Inside Higher Ed :: Higher Education's Source for News, V... - 0 views

  • Those who want to understand the ideas in the book may want to note the title; it’s no coincidence that Blum wrote about college “culture,” and not “ethics” or “morality.” And while she did use “plagiarism” in the title, she faults colleges and professors for failing to distinguish between buying a paper to submit as your own, submitting a paper containing passages from many authors without appropriate credit, and simply failing to learn how to cite materials. Treating these violations of academic norms the same way is part of the problem, she writes
  • In terms of explaining student culture, Blum uses many of the student interviews to show how education has become to many students more an issue of credentialing and getting ahead than of any more idealistic love of learning.
