Event description

Description


Widespread distribution of recorded music via digital networks affects more than just business models and marketing strategies; it also alters the way we understand recordings, scenes and histories of popular music culture. This Is Not a Remix uncovers the analog roots of digital practices and brings the long history of copies and piracy into contact with contemporary controversies about the reproduction, use and circulation of recordings on the internet. This is Not A Remix challenges claims that ‘remix culture’ is a substantially new set of innovations and highlights the continuities and contradictions of the Internet era.

By teasing out unspoken assumptions about media and culture, this book offers fresh perspectives on the cultural politics of intellectual property in the digital era and poses questions about the promises, possibilities and challenges of network visibility and mobility.


Margie Borschke is the author of This is Not a Remix: Piracy, Authenticity and Popular Music (Bloomsbury Academic, 2017) and a Senior Lecturer in Journalism and Media and Postgraduate Coursework Director for the Department of Media, Music Communication and Cultural Studies at Macquarie University. Her research focuses on reproduction, circulation and distribution as cultural practices, with an emphasis on the aesthetics of circulation, the materiality of networked media, and the rhetorical dimensions of Internet culture.
