Eclectic Method - A Brief History of Sampling

eclecticmethod.net

MP3 DOWNLOAD: soundcloud.com/eclecticmethod/a-brief-history-of-sampling

A video remix journey through the history of sampling taking in some of the most noted breaks and riffs of the decades. A chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it, each re-use another chapter in the modern narrative.

SYMPHONIE CINÉTIQUE -THE POETRY OF MOTION FILM
Joachim Sauter & Ólafur Arnalds at MADE

"The closing weekend of this interdisciplinary show at MADE is heralded by the release of a video presenting Joachim Sauter’s (ART+COM) and Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds’ artistic dialogue. The exhibition is open until, and including Sunday, July 28.

Symphonie Cinétique—The Poetry of Motion introduces the journey that Sauter and Arnalds ventured on together at MADE, which culminated in the creation and performance of a Gesamtkunstwerk fusing light, motion and sound. The exchange between these two craftsmen, each coming from a distinctly different discipline, results in a magic alliance between Joachim Sauter’s kinetic pieces and the heart-touching music composed by Ólafur Arnalds.
Sauter’s delicate pieces, created and designed together with his ART+COM colleagues, are known for setting international standards of excellence in spatial media communication. The first comprehensive collection of the studio’s work has been published by Gestalten: ART+COM Media Spaces and Installations.
