So many samples, so little time

Craft & Design Music

German performance/media artist Johannes Kriedler created a composition comprised of samples taken from his own music collection. In order to legally present the work he is obligated to register each sample with GEMA(Germany’s equivalent to the RIAA) by way of formal paper documentation. So what’s the big deal? Well, Kriedler’s piece uses a whole lotta samples – 70,200 of them make up the resulting 33 seconds of audio entitled product placements.
