Yes…you got it. CEC & SCA is presenting Girltalk here…at UCLA.
Gregg Michael Gillis, better known by his stage name Girl Talk, is an American musician. Gillis, who lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has released four LPs on the record label Illegal Art and EPs on 333 and 12 Apostles. He began making music while studying biomedical engineering at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He producesmashup-style remixes, in which he uses often a dozen or more unauthorized samples from different songs to create a new song; The New York Times Magazine has called his music “a lawsuit waiting to happen,” a criticism that Gillis has attributed to a mainstream media that wants “to create controversy where it doesn’t really exist,” citing fair use as a legal backbone for his sampling practices.
