Unit 5 – Option 2

I find the topic of intellectual property and copyright quite interesting.

I have chosen to include some resources on sampling, and the legal obligations of artists who sample music.

The Avalanche’s album Since I Left You released in the year 2000, was famously said to contain 3500 samples. (Streader, 2018).

This video illustrates how several samples were constructed to create the title track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYU1HwqCqvk

Here two members talk about sampling and define it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cV09PzfvqE

Here is the single “Frontier Psychiatrist” from the album. How many different samples can you find?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLrnkK2YEcE

These days there are tools to help artists track samples they use, although they are not free https://www.tracklib.com/licensing

What do you think is a fair use when it comes to sampling?

Streader, K. (2018). How The Avalanches turned 3,500 samples into the globally acclaimed ‘Since I Left You’. Beat. Melbourne, Beat.
