Crystal Ballroom

[SAMPLE CULTURE] Bay Area ensemble Negativland isn’t frequently discussed in concert with its Mills College antecedents like Terry Riley and Morton Subotnick, but the same sense of electronic exploration pushes both cohorts. Coming along at the tail-end of punk’s first wave, Negativland began sampling and cutting up audio during the late 1970s, issued its opening salvo in 1980 and eventually hooked up with SST Records a few years later. Since then, there have been lawsuits and acrimony surrounding the troupe’s occasionally liberal use of source material. But it hasn’t stopped Negativland from persevering and lobbing pointed criticism at well-established musicians and pols. Religion is set to face the ensemble’s satire with the pending It’s All in Your Head, due out in the fall.
