Sonic Outlaws


Rental Format(s): 16mm
Sale Format(s): DVD

This energized experimental essay on copyright-infringement, "fair use," and culture-jamming stems from an investigation into the infamous Negativland-U2 suit, then spirals out through the similarly inspired activities of John Oswald, the Tape-beatles, the Emergency Broadcast Network, the Barbie Liberation Organization, and other artists now working with "appropriated" sound. Amidst a dense montage of provocative interviews, electronic music, and found footage, contemporary practices of audio-collage, phone-pranking, billboard alteration and media-hoaxing emerge to challenge conventional relations between authorship, criticism, parody and the marketplace. The comical compilation doc hopefully serves to suggest methods of creative resistance and perhaps a sense of an "electronic folk culture" - against the all-consuming corporate-media offensive.
