- Jon Leidecker (aka Wobbly) is producing an in-depth overview on the History of Sampling. His show, entitled VARIATIONS, is available online at: http://bit.ly/9aMeSJ
The first episode (http://bit.ly/bRLW2u) exposes that the idea of a completely original piece of music is fairly recent. Music was passed on through sound, through generations, even for centuries after the invention of written music. Only in the 14th century did it become standard practice for a composer to sign his name to a piece of music and claim it entirely as his own, giving rise to the cult of the individual composer. But as recording supplanted sheet music in the 20th century, the presence of communal influence became unavoidably obvious once again as composers began to use recordings to make new recordings.
