Pastiche (pas-'tEsh) Ã�Â¢?? n. (from Italian pasticcio) 1. a literary, artistic, musical, or architectural work that imitates the style of previous work; also: such stylistic imitation 2. a musical, literary, or artistic composition made up of selections from different works
For many of the same reasons DJDeedle loves mashup music, he also loves pastiche. Actually, mashup is pastiche under the second definition above. Good pastiche crosses time as well as musical genre. This week's Deedlecast is dedicated to this type of music that lets us straddle years, decades, and even centuries.
