Commenter: What’s telling is he hasn’t tried to imply that works based on samples have any less emotional impact, which of course is the goal
[Quote]Influence and remixing are not the same things. Remixing implies that you use the originals and overlay them. Influence means you saw something, it great influenced you, and you created your own original take on it. Remix society is the society of using what was already done and piecing it together. Nothing new is created, except the collage. Influence requires that you create from scratch. You hire the actors, you write the story, you shoot the material. [/quote]
The point is to show that when people that are completely bereft of any artistic talent whatsover opine on the creative process, they start to look like fools.
Happens all the time here.
I agree. He’s also set up the straw man that all works created on samples by their nature take no effort to execute.
What’s telling is he hasn’t tried to imply that works based on samples have any less emotional impact, which of course is the goal. Those of us that are creative know the ends justify the means.
