OK, now you've gotten ridiculous.

If you seriously think that composing music by juxtaposing various samples
together is some sort of "new order", you're lost.

No matter how intelligent or interesting you (or your music) are, you're
1) violating copyright laws, and more importantly the rights of the artists
you choose to juxtapose
2) just throwing other people's tea into "your harbor"

Go practice your scales, arpeggios, etc., and develop some real songwriting
skills.  Make your own tea.

Maybe someone will sample you.
