I Found a Sound: A Brief History of Sampling and Appropriation in Music

Show from Monday October 5th, 2009

Dr. Zomb and RefuDJ ManRich present a chronological look at sampling, from it’s roots in Musique Concrete and Avant Garde, to the pioneering lp by Brian Eno and David Byrne, and on to culture jamming artists such as Negativland, John Oswald, Evolution Control Committee, as well as Turntablism in Hip Hop and finally, recent Mashup masterpieces.

Plunder Radio!!!

Fun show. We helped raise a few bucks for KBOO and presented in rough chronological order a somewhat abbreviated overview of sampling and appropriation in music. It’s amazing where the road will lead when you get two DJs in the room with pickings from their respective collections. We ended up continually surprising each other when one record from one of us would dovetail with something in another’s crate, with little or no pre-planning.

Dr. Zomb and I would like to thank all the folks who provided or suggested material, among them DJ Broken Window, Rolf Semprebon, Marc De Gierre, Mssr. Chris Merrick and more…

I would also like to dedicate this show to KBOO’s Papa Dada, the late, great Richard Francis, who blew my teenage mind by playing historic cut-up and tape art music on his show all those years ago.
