Remix: Lawrence Lessig on IP in the Digital Economy

"The prolific and controversial web culture of piracy, particularly file sharing, has taken the world by storm, and for more than a decade, we’ve been waging a war in the name of the 20th Century’s model of copyright law.

The content industry has convinced the world that extremism in copyright regulation is good for business and economic growth. But that's false. Join Stanford Law Professor Lawrence Lessig as he discusses the potential creative accomplishments that our society could achieve, if only we viewed copyright and intellectual property (IP) laws differently."

Lessig, L. (2008). "Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy", Bloomsbury Academic.

Debate duets: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump serenade each other

"The second US presidential debate was characterised by levels of vitriol never before seen on the US political stage.

But while millions of viewers across the world watched in horror as the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton bloodied themselves over the Trump tapes, Clinton emails, tax, Syria and Obamacare, others saw the opportunity for humour.

Enter the memes.

The combination of microphones and roaming candidates, aided by the town hall-style of the debate in St Louis, proved fertile ground for imagining an alternate reality – one where Clinton and Trump were serenading each other.

As the debate ground on the #debatesongs hashtag spawned memes of the pair singing along to duets from Frozen, Grease and – probably most memorably – Dirty Dancing."

Kutiman: Thru You Too (2014)

"Thru You Too is a music album made out of unrelated YouTube videos mixed together. No additional sounds were recorded and none of the players knew they are participating. This is the follow up to my ThruYou project which was released in 2009.

I would like to thank all the musicians who are part of this project and to all of you out there for sharing your knowledge and talent on the internet."

(Ophir Kutiel, 2014)

How we made the pop song 19 by Paul Hardcastle

"Then, one night, I was watching TV and happened to tape a documentary–it was ABC's Vietnam Requiem–about the war. When I watched it back, what struck me was how young the soldiers were: the documentary said their average age was 19. I was out having fun in pubs and clubs when I was 19, not being shoved into jungles and shot at. One line–'None of them received a hero's welcome'–really struck a chord. When the soldiers came home, people wondered what had happened to the smiling kids who went out there. What did they expect if they'd been through that shit?

I started messing around and adding music to the narrative. The main sound was electro–I was hugely into Afrika Bambaataa at the time–but I added a bit of jazz and a nice melody. I used an Emu Emulator, an early type of sampler that had a two–second limit when it came to doing samples. That's why the hook was 'N–n–n–nineteen'. It was the only bit of the narrative that made sense in two seconds."
