Can I get an amen?

An audio installation that unfolds a critical perspective of perhaps the most sampled drum beat in the history of recorded music, the Amen Break.

"To trace the history of the amen break is to trace the history of a brief period of time when it seemed digital tools offered a potentially unlimited amount of new forms of expression."

"The story demonstrates that a society free to borrow and build upon the past is culturally richer than a controlled one."

Check it. NSFW, or for sensitive ears, thanks to the NWA excerpt.
