My knowledge is that every composer use to "write the same song every  
time", at least according to themselves. And most remix wizards do  
this with audio. Kind of "musical Ready-Mades" (as Marcel Duchamp did  
with sculpture in 1914) as a well known sound or melody phrase takes  
on a new meaning when recalled in a new context  ;-)  I guess you  
could say that would go for most classical composers as well, since  
one of the most important techniques have also been to re-use melodic  
themes with variations to give them a slightly new twist as the piece
