MARIA CHAVEZ, born in Lima, Peru and based in NYC, is best known as an abstract turntablist, sound artist and DJ. Accidents, coincidence and failures are themes that unite her sound sculptures, sound installations and other works with her improvised solo turntable performance practice.
She is regularly invited to host workshops & lectures in major universities all over the world. She was chosen to be a research fellow with the Sound Practice Research Department of Goldsmith’s University of London from 2015 – 2017 and most recently taught a 5 day abstract turntablism class as part of her artist residency with the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus/Aalborg, Denmark. She is scheduled to lecture & teach at Harvard University, the University of Richmond (Richmond, Virginia) & Black Mountain College Museum in the spring of 2018.
LEE PATTERSON has devised and performs with a selection of amplified devices and processes. Whether working live with amplification or recording within an environment, he has pioneered a range of methods to produce or uncover complex sound in unexpected places. From rock chalk and springs, to aquatic plants and insects, Lee eavesdrops upon and takes inspiration from places and situations otherwise considered mute. Lee’s collaborators have included some of today’s most respected experimental musicians, artists and filmmakers, while his work has featured in various exhibitions and festivals, and on UK TV, BBC Radio 3, 4 and 6, Resonance104.4 FM and on radio stations worldwide.
