Have you ever heard a song and had a wave of familiarity wash over? Why does it sound so similar yet distinctly different? Sampling is the process by which sections of familiar classics are repurposed to become building blocks for fresh, new tracks. Music producers find gripping sounds and loop, chop, warp, and rearrange them to create magic.
Join producers Parimal Shais, Kalmi, and rapper HanuMankind in conversation with Aneesha Kotwani for a session exploring the creative process of sampling, its influence on music production today, and the role it can play in reviving the rich musical history of the subcontinent.
The producers will also present live demonstrations where they identify samples they’ve used and repurposed in their own work.
This event is conducted as part of the lead-up to MAP’s second edition of our annual festival, Art is Life: SoundFrames which is conceptualised around music.
(This event will be on YouTube and Zoom)
