This chapter provides a historical overview of audiovisual sampling in Spain, concentrating on the contemporary works of amateur filmmaker David Domingo and visual artist Marìa Cañas. First, it provides a theoretical and historical survey of sampling within Spanish culture from the 1970s (the end of Franco’s dictatorship) to the present. Second, it interrogates its legitimacy and adequacy to articulate a detailed discourse about Spanish cultural history. The chapter maneuvers through the Spanish subcultural and avant-garde detritus to build an alternative history of cultural legacy that emphasizes the practice of sampling. Finally, it juxtaposes Domingo’s wide range of analogue sampling practices—from Super 8 films to live performances—with Marìa Cañas’s output, a cannibalistic approach to audiovisual culture through digitization.

Keywords:   David Domingo, Marìa Cañas, Spanish cultural history, remix, sampling, punk videomaking, experimental cinema, YouTube, pig, Andalusian culture
