Turntable performance by María Chávez. Born in Lima, Peru and based in NYC, María Chávez is best known as an abstract turntablist, sound artist and DJ. Her work combines recorded sounds from vinyl records with the electroacoustic sounds of vinyl and needle in various deteriorating phases. Accidents, coincidence, and failures are themes that unite her sound sculptures, installations, and other works with her improvised solo turntable performance practice.
Organized by Harvard Ed Portal and GLAM (Group for Latin American Musics), with the collaboration of the Observatorio of the Instituto Cervantes at Harvard University.
Date: Friday, February 2. 7.30pm
