Off-beat Turntablism Workshop by Wolfgang Fuchs

Original annoucement:

off-beat turntablism workshop
by wolfgang fuchs

all people interested in experimental use and hacking of turntables are invited to join this event. after a tour through the history of turntablism and plunderphonics - with use of audio-samples - several methods of deriving non-rhythmic music out of common records played with a standard dj-setup are presented.

hidden sounds, errors, cuts and dust play an important role in this approach to understand and play records as interface of a stand-alone instrument. another motivation of the `off-beat`-session is the demystification and a new definition of the dj`s role in modern and temporary musical practise.

after presenting different playing techniques and handling of material, the workshop will turn into an open experimental lab, where participants are invited to play with the on-site equipment and talk about the experiences made.
