"With a background in both music-radio and talk-radio, DJ Pixelface takes the too-cool-for-school out of electronic music, because he's not that cool. Fascinating meets funny." The talk begins 40,000 years ago with the first instrument known to mankind; the bone-flute. You will discover: which Canadian invented the organ? Which French guy started sampling in the 1940’s? Which Japanese dude invented devices that accidentally changed the face of music when they were found in a Chicago pawn shop? What's the most sampled and abused drum-loop ever (from NWA to The Prodigy to Oasis) - and why did the drummer die penniless?
