Recycling Pop Music: Imitation vs. Originality

Wednesday, March 16
2:00PM - 3:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 11AB
531 E 4th St

In music, is anything really original? We strive to answer that very question by presenting the diverse perspectives on creativity and originality, and by looking at the way ideas are reused and renewed throughout history. By exploring the nature of musical influence - cover songs, the rise of the remix, digital sampling, technological trends and fads - and innovation, we’ll not only discover liberating notions of authorship and artistry, but create from a more informed place.
