Appropriation and Remix Culture in our Technological Times

I like how Boling puts it in his quote, that the line between general web and art web is blurred. I totally agree but think that I won’t take the mocking position as he did. I believe that as this issue do appear in internet culture, it is reasonable. Quoting my dad, “If it exists, then it is reasonable.” Uncanny things can be art. There is no real definition as to what art is. So if this form of art exist on the internet, it means that it is accepted by at least a group of internet surfers.

“Songsmith generates musical accompaniment to match a singer’s voice. Just choose a musical style, sing into your PC’s microphone, and Songsmith will create backing music for you. Then share your songs with your friends and family, post your songs online, or create your own music videos.” I think this is taking karaoke and making it into audio art. Even though it sounds a bit weird, I like the concept and the piece coming out of it.
