Imitation, Flattery, and Getting Nowhere: A Look at the Blurred Lines at the Intersection of Who's Copying Whom

Imitation, Flattery, and Getting Nowhere: A Look at the Blurred Lines at the Intersection of Who's Copying Whom

Abstract

"You know, this song sounds just like . . ." At this lunch, we will listen to music and consider the context in which artists can and do sound like other artists. We'll explore parody, imitation, and genre. Sometimes the imitating artist has "Got to Give It Up," and sometimes she doesn't. Join us for a repast of musical comparisons, where you get to be the judge.
