Through analysis, observation, critical listening, interviews and creative practice, this study explores how techniques of appropriation via digital music sampling are used for electronic musical composition and production. Included is an examination of literature and creative work focused on the Golden Age of Hip-Hop that explores early sampling processes and techniques. Through original compositions and an exegesis, the study provides unique and significant contributions to the field including the identification of four approaches to the design and construction of sample-based composition and associated techniques for achieving them using contemporary music technologies.
