Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Christian Ernest Marclay is a Swiss-American visual artist and composer. Marclay's work explores connections between sound, noise, photography, video, and film. A pioneer of using gramophone records and turntables as musical instruments to create sound collages, Marclay is, in the words of critic Thom Jurek, perhaps the "unwitting inventor of turntablism." His own use of turntables and records, beginning in the late 1970s, was developed independently of but roughly parallel to hip hop's use of the instrument. Christian Marclay was born on 11 January 1955 in San Rafael, Marin County, California to a Swiss father and an American mother and raised in Geneva, Switzerlandshow more
