Remix Theory: The Aesthetics of Sampling

Remix Theory: The Aesthetics of Sampling by Eduardo Navas, Springer:

Remix Theory: The Aesthetics of Sampling is an analysis of Remix in art, music, and new media.

Future musical agents will cope across multiple rehearsals and concert tours, or gather multiple commissions, potentially working over long musical lifetimes; they may be virtuoso performers and composers attributed in their own right, or powerful musical companions and assistants to human musicians.
