Recycling

Musicology of Electroacoustic Music [MEM]  >  Aesthetics  >  Digital Aesthetics  ]

Recycling is a contemporary term which essentially allows for existent musical or sound material to be reused in a new context. Similar to composers’ and musicians’ traditional borrowing of their own or their predecessors’ music in their own work, recycling allows sounds or musical material to be appropriated and musically recontextualised. As with earlier ages, the line between creative use and plagiarism is open to interpretation.
