Christian Marclay DJ Trio
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: Asphodel
The sounds of vinyl-the surface noise that amasses ticks and pops and accidental stylus scratches over time, and the sharp snaps of it getting broken into bits-intrigues Christian Marclay more than its musical content. In his DJ improv project, djTRIO, he shares space with a changing lineup of two other deconstruction turntablists; members include this album's collaborators DJ Olive, Toshio Kajiwara, Erik M and Marina Rosenfeld. The results resemble an archeological excavation where whirlpool scratches, microtones and samples of thrift store-mined cheese fly around like poltergeists released from a tomb. An uneasy trip, but far more adventurous than instructional video-taught flare scratches over clich»d breaks.
