The musical input of the software module �Absolut DJ,� provided by DJ Spooky, combines basic components and typical procedures generally known from the DJ movement�the use of samples, loops, and developing patterns�with the opportunities of computers and the World Wide Web. There are symbols that represent different complex sounds that can be chosen with a mouse-click and placed into a pattern to be played by two moving cursors as performed sounds. Four directional arrows can also be placed into a pattern that allows the cursors to follow labyrinthine ways. The DJ, whose work is normally founded to a large degree on recycled raw material, reduces his own role to become no more than a material and system supplier, opening the chain of creativity towards the audience.
