Gig Information

Audio Foundation and Sound Explorers are pleased to announce two very special shows for Peru via NYC abstract turntablist, conceptual artist and DJ, Maria Chávez.

Chávez’ turntable performances are largely improvisatory, combining recorded sounds from the vinyl itself with electroacoustic sounds of vinyl and needle in various deteriorating phases to build unique sound worlds. Much thought is given to each individual place she inhabits; her conceptual sound installation practice tends to be site-specific, allowing each space to highlight it’s own sonic qualities.

As a conceptual artist, Chávez’ solo exhibitions are often interactive, ranging from spatial sound presentations to turning an entire art space into a gigantic string instrument for the audience to perform. As a DJ, Maria has shared her expansive music collection of techno and house music alongside iconic electronic musicians and DJ’s like; Simian Mobile Disco, Demdike Stare, Powell and DJ Marcelle. Her DJ mixes can be heard via her Soundcloud page along with DJing for radio spots at the Lot Radio (Brooklyn, NY), NTS radio, NNWR (New New World Radio) Moscow and more.

Her instructional book of essays and illustrations, OF TECHNIQUE: Chance Procedures on Turntable, was published in 2012. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including at HeK – haus der elektronischen Künste-Basel, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, and The Getty Museum.
