JOHN OSWALD, MARC GUNDERSON
Over 20 years ago, John Oswald may have single-handedly created a style of music–called “Plunderphonics”–which is now known to millions through the work of Negativland, Evolution Control Committee, Girls on Top, 2ManyDJs and a growing number of bootleg producers and DJs around the world. We’ve invited John Oswald and Mark Gunderson (Evolution Control Committee) to present their work and discuss the importance of criticizing the mainstream using its own sounds and images, why all of us should be frightened of the recent boom in “intellectual property” laws, and how they have each taken on the majors, fought the law and won.
