The sound that connects Stravinsky to Bruno Mars

This is an incredible short documentary by VOX on one of the first sampled sounds (the orchestra hit) which happened to be a concert of Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite and how it’s been used ever since in rock, rap, and everything in between. This is an incredible story and history.
