4/6: Skill–Remediation

According to Bolter & Grusin, remediation is the incorporation or representation of one medium in another medium.   For example, a film based on a book is remediating that printed story.  As digital interfaces become more widespread, remediation becomes an aspect that composers pay attention to; they create the original work with an eye towards how it will be transformed after its release.
