Collage of Mistakes

In an interview on NPR, DJ Shadow described early sampling as a “collage of mistakes.” I really like that.

A lot of the early sampling that was done, there’s these moments where they almost sound like mistakes — sort of a weird blast of a horn that kind of goes out of tune for a moment. When Public Enemy and others were taking these moments and amplifying the noise component rather than the musical component, you were getting just a completely different way of looking at music, almost this collage of mistakes that in itself makes something so right. I thought that was a brilliant moment in music.
