Newsfeed is a composition for eight performers and electronics, written in 2016. It incorporates elements from popular music, namely in the form of borrowed instrumentation and influx of styles, in its aesthetic. A discussion of the ideologies behind the crossover of popular music within contemporary classical composition prefaces specific examples from recent composers that have also sought to bridge the gap between these two realms of music. The observations of musicologists, as well as artist statements from the composers themselves, justify the philosophical and cultural ramifications of the cross-pollination between popular and art music. The composers discussed in this report use a variety of methods to crossover the two realms, which range from instrumentation, incorporation of popular styles, and references to popular music and contemporary media within their works. Following this is a discussion of popular artists who have made a similar crossover into the art world.
