Digging in the Crates: The DNA of Contemporary Music

Roland Loessiein’s diploma thesis entitled Digging in the Crates combines artsy design with the dusty fingered work ethic that is the foundation of modern sample based music. The interactive installation seeks “to explore the sampling as a production technology of contemporary music” while taking participants through a history of audio manipulation.

While the cohesive design will certainly appeal to the more visually oriented, vinyl junkies will find it worth watching simply to hear the 9th Creation “Bubble Gum” sample.
