Panda Bear Sampling
The use of the Gothic Voices cut is sampling at its best. Those sounds were molded into what they became on I'm Not and something totally new. He took the production of others then created bent notes like a player on a guitar string. To that, if a guitarist takes a guitar which is linked via midi to a library of sounds - birds chirping, cars on a highway, chords from the song Stone Free - and plays a melody with it he is a musician making music. PB is the same he just happens to use keyboards and boxes instead of a guitar. Musicians started using sounds made by beating on drums, then strings and winds and through the years the sounds that have been manipulated have become more and more complicated but it's about the musician, the player who makes it happen.
