(2004) Recycling Music, Answering Back: Toward an Oral Tradition of Electronic Music

This essay outlines a framework for understanding new musical compositions and performances that utilize pre-existing sound recordings. In attempting to articulate why musicians are increasingly using recorded music in their creative work, the author calls for and shows examples of new tools and performance interfaces that aid in the dynamic appropriation of pre-recorded music.
