Artistic director Taku Muzita Lippit aka dj sniff will represent STEIM at NIME this year.
dj sniff will be touring with saxophonist Keir Neuringer in 3 cities in the U.S. and later attending the NIME09 conference at Carnegie Mellon University. Hope to see some of you there!
DJ SNIFF & KEIR NEURINGER share a passion for expanding their instruments beyond cultural preconceptions & musical conventions. In their duo they access, examine, cross-reference & play with complimentary & contrasting techniques & artefacts from their musical histories. Their performances move sometimes capriciously, other times unnoticeably between elements of free jazz, hip hop, & ambient plunderphonics, placing turntable & saxophone virtuosity amidst vinyl & cassette tape playback, looping & scratching in the context of custom hardware & software & old guitar pedals. As a duo, DJ SNIFF & KEIR NEURINGER involve themselves in a new musical paradigm free from the constraints of genre, academia, or commerce.
