Musical Pastiche, Nostalgia, and the Shaping of Latinx Identity in Popular Streaming Media

Jacqueline Avila , University of Texas, Austin

This presentation examines the soundscapes and compositional techniques utilized by the EDM group the Mexican Institute of Sound (MIS) and its founder Camilo Lara in the 2021 album DF and in Netflix’s Latinx-focused dramady Gentefied (2020-21). The music created for both the album and the series feature musics of the past either sampled or referenced into a modern musical pastiche that evokes various forms of nostalgia.
