Abstract or description

The Age of Chopping Off Heads consists of two video works; Dying is for Amateurs and Trial by Media. Two choreographed dance performances have been filmed as interpretations of pop songs, written and recorded by Common Culture, with lyrics adapted from celebrity confession interviews. The music itself is produced by using, and manipulating, publicly available music samples in free to use Digital Audio Workspaces.
