Event description

Description

MARIA CHAVEZ is in Huddersfield!

Born in Lima, Peru, Maria Chávez is known as an abstract turntablist, sound artist and DJ. Accidents, coincidence and failures are themes that unite her sound sculptures, installations and other works with her solo turntable performance practice. Routledge Press chose Maria to be on the cover of the latest edition of their Electronic and Experimental textbook that is distributed widely throughout academia. The book is used in Universities and Music programs all over the world as a first year course for students interested in the world of avant garde and electronic sound practice. Maria wrote her first book on her unique approach to abstract turntablism in 2012 titled, OF TECHNIQUE: Chance Procedures on Turntable (currently out of stock), a book of essays and illustrations that guide the novice turntablist to explore the world of needles and vinly through the lens of deterioration, destruction and the unexpected.

Maria regularly teaches workshops introducing students to her turntable practice all over the world and has been a research fellow with the Sound Practice Research Department of Goldsmith’s University of London since 2015.

She presents lectures on sound art, improvisation, multi-channel speaker installation practice, most recently for Rhode Island School of Design (RISD),Stony Brook University, the Contemporary Arts Museum-Houston, Berklee College-Valencia, Spain and others later in the fall/winter season.
