Performance Explores the Creative and Experimental Side of Turntable Performance
Since 1997, avant-garde DJ/turntablist Christian Marclay has utilized his rotating trio of DJs as a showcase for the most creative talents of the improvising turntable scene. The current djTRIO, which, along with Marclay, features DJ Olive (The Audio Janitor) and Toshio Kajiwara, casts aside the predominant notion of DJ as soloist and instead emphasizes the group over the individual. The performance builds on Marclays idea that, If the deejay is to be considered a musician, then he or she should be able to play in a group. The group features DJs well versed in the experimental, beat and club scenes, promising a performance that oscillates from the more austere, reflective setting of museums and concert halls to the late-night vibe of the underground nightclub. The performance will feature continuous live screen projections of each DJs turntable work.
Also performing will be Hanson Recording Artist Wolf Eyes. Since 1997, Hanson Records Wolf Eyes have been creating a beautiful and mesmerizing electronic crunch. Working with tapes and distorted beats, theyve perfected a uniquely tangled and deceptively simple maze of rhythmic sound. Wolf Eyes have been performing their peculiar brand of Midwest noise throughout the country, expanding musical boundaries and exhausting eardrums.
This event is sponsored by Forum for Contemporary Art, a committee of Friends of Modern Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts.
