“Sampling The Spectral” – Blake Durham - Spring 2012 Conference Paper | Hauntology | Scoop.it

'... in this paper, I will attempt to demonstrate what I consider an underdeveloped — perhaps even previously undeveloped — avenue within experimental music. I contend that The Caretaker’s latest work, entitled Patience (After Sebald), raises important questions about the nature of memory through the sampling and manipulation of an early 20th century recording of the Franz Schubert song cycle Winterreise. I will discuss the conceptual situation of Patience (After Sebald), in particular, the critical theory concept of hauntology, and how differing notions of the ontology of art music versus popular music affect the critical interpretation of hauntological works.'
