Music: djTRIO (Christian Marclay/DJ Olive/Toshio Kajiwara)
DJ: Chris Strouth
A rare free performance by New York-based turntablist/visual artist Christian Marclay (Walker artist-in-residence). Marclay’s forward-thinking trio takes turn-tablism beyond scratch beats into a haunting found-sound experiment rooted in the context of free-improvisation. djTRIO, which features the deejay as an instrumentalist working collectively in a group, has performed at festivals and museums around the world. Marclay also performs at the Triple Rock Social Club on Saturday, August 21, with George Cartwright, Andrew Broder, and others.
