In this paper, the author reflects on his interest in the ways that new (and often radical) artistic ideas co-evolve with and often raise issues about technology and politics. He discusses important considerations concerning sound replication and transformation via computers, and the aesthetic and philosophical features of the techno-music landscape, introducing the concept of ’hacker aesthetics’. He also discusses three projects that have employed music technology in ways that question certain values or policies - John Oswald’s Plunderphonics (1988-89), illegal art‘s Deconstructing Beck (1998), and Polansky et. al Frog Peak Collaborations Project (1996-98).
