live showcase by Davide Tidoni
"The showcase CREATION-APPROPRIATION consists of me presenting to the audience an audio mix that includes recordings of football chants mixed together with the “original” songs that the football chants are based on.
The project looks at how pop culture* gets appropiated and repurposed by football supporters. In more general terms, the aim of the project is to reflect on how the Creative Process always transforms the what-is-already-there and take it to somewhere else."
*Pop culture in both the senses of 1) popular traditional oral culture and 2) mass consumption capitalistic society.
