This book puts sampling studies on the academic map by focusing on sampling as a logic of exchange between audio-visual media. While some recent scholarship has addressed sampling primarily in relation to copyright, this book is a first: a critical study of sampling and remixing across audio-visual media. Of special interest here are works that bring together both audio and visual sampling: music that samples film and television; underground dance and multimedia scenes that rely on sampling; Internet "memes" that repurpose music videos, trailers and news broadcasts; films and videos that incorporate a wide range of sampling aesthetics; and other provocative variations. Comprised of four sections titled "roots," "scenes," "cinema" and "web" this collection digs deep into and across sampling practices that intervene in popular culture from unconventional or subversive perspectives. To this end, Sampling Media extends the conceptual boundaries of sampling by emphasizing its inter-medial dimensions, exploring the politics of sampling practice beyond copyright law, and examining its more marginal applications. It likewise puts into conversation compelling instances of sampling from a wide variety of historical and contemporary, global and local contexts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
With Sampling Media, David Laderman and Laurel Westrup have ushered in a monumental collection that extends and reroutes all previous discussions about sampling in the arts and culture. History, theory, law, technology and creative aesthetics are each explored with serious rigor, yet there is ample room here for the mirth and play that characterize the sampling sport. If you thought you knew what sampling is, this book will make you think again. * Murray Forman, Media and Screen Studies, Northeastern University *
Sampling Media is a startlingly insightful collection that explores the wide array of cultural practices associated with sampling culture in all of its vibrant diversity. The essays, which cover a remarkable set of approaches to hybrid media practices from high art to pop culture, are assembled with the nuance and precision of any great playlist. * Virginia Kuhn, Associate Professor, School of Cinematic Arts, University of Southern California *
