I've seen this mentioned often and I think it's a stretch. While Schaeffer
used turntables, he was not playing other peoples records as Bambaataa and
everyone since, but using discs he cut himself, wasn't he?

I mean it apples and oranges if you compare collaging your own material and
appropriating other's works, isn't it?
