Inventing instruments, Inventing media, Inventing music – DJ Sniff’s music and the legend of STEIM”
Novermber 2011

After a bohemian night of DIY music-making and lecture in Russia’s urban growth, the Pavilion is pleased to present the next installment in its event series: a talk and evening of musical creation with DJ Sniff, in cooperation with Yan Jun.

DJ Sniff
DJ Sniff (Takuro Mizuta Lippit) believes in the instrumental autonomy of the turntable and the musicianship of the DJ. He is a turntable musician working in the field of improvised and experimental music. His music focuses on the live reconstruction and narratization of the phonographically amplified – the music, the sound, the technology and the past. To achieve this, he uses a unique setup consisting of hand-made hardware interfaces and a custom Max/MSP software along with one turntable and DJ mixer. He is also a concert/event curator for electronic music and a researcher of music technology. Since 2005 he has been involved with STEIM’s (Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music, Amsterdam) R&D lab and is currently its Artistic Director.

Center for research & development of instruments & tools for performers in the electronic performance arts. Laboratory, workshop, international meeting place, artist hotel, production office, live electroacoustic music, DJ’s, VJ’s, theater and installation makers, video artists and nomad studio.

Also, DJ Sniff will bring some Crackle Boxes for us to play!
