We live in a sampling society, both literally and figuratively. A little of this, a little of that, mash it up and make something new and uniquely ours. It’s not an entirely new thing, but digital culture has made the pace faster and faster. This documentary from 1988 shows the then-blossoming techniques of digital music sampling. 1988 by today’s standards is practically ancient… but still provocative.
