Title: Classical ain't dead : the aesthetics of classical music sampling in hip hop
Authors: Daly, Caitlin Rhys Gertrude

Abstract: This study examines the practice of sampling classical music in hip hop, with particular focus on creative decisions made by producers. My research offers a survey of recent trends (c. 1994 to the present) in hip hop sampling of classical music that distinguishes techniques used by the producers and artists. The trends in the taxonomy also entail corresponding compositional philosophies, or reasons the producers use the samples in particular ways. Listening culture and how listeners experience sampled music are coupled to expand existing literature on quotation and meaning in quotation. Finally, some thoughts will be presented about the idea of hip hop offering a way to appreciate classical music in a new context.
