Turntable Music Symposium 2016, University of Northampton

In January I organised a symposium on Turntable Music with invited guests Karin Weissenbrunner (City University, London) and Lisa Busby (Goldsmiths University, London). The event was held in the Avenue Gallery, University of Northampton as part of my exhibition Vinyl Record Cutting as a Compositional Tool.

Karin presented her PhD research focused on musical analysis of experimental turntablist performance and Lisa discussed her approaches to performance using playback media. I also presented my experiments with record cutting and discussed the presentation of the work in the exhibition. In the evening we had a concert where both myself and Lisa performed individually and we also did a short improvisation together. Lisa performed tracks from her new album Fingers in The Gloss and my performance was an improvisation using records which I have cut as part of my research.
