Rip! : a remix manifesto( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the complexities of intellectual property in the era of peer-to-peer file sharing. Interviews key figures in the debate, including Gregg Gillis, the Pittsburgh biomedical engineer who moonlights as Girl Talk, a mash-up artist rearranging the pop chart's DNA with his incongruous, entirely sample-based songs. A mash-up in itself, this shatters the wall between users and producers, and challenges the thresholds of 'fair use.'

Creative Commons founder, Lawrence Lessig, Brazil's Minister of Culture Gilberto Gil and pop culture critic Cory Doctorow are also along for the ride. Which side of the ideas war are you on? Find out after watching RIP!

Feed the animals by Girl Talk( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Pittsburgher Greg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, is a DJ and electronic cut- & -paste artist who garnered heavy attention in 2006 and 2007 with his album NIGHT RIPPER. Though Gillis's early material showcased an aggressively experimental mind at work, it wasn't nearly as accessible as the entirely sample-based pop mash-up that was NIGHT RIPPER. Mixing the likes of Elton John, Biggie Smalls, the Boredoms, the Pixies, and just about anything else imaginable, Gillis took the idea of reappropriation in pop music to a stunning new level that was at once technically dazzling and thoroughly engaging. Gillis also made a name for himself through his ecstatic participatory live shows, and has gone on to do remixes for Grizzly Bear, Peter Bjorn and John, and Beck
