Two experimental music giants, Otomo Yoshihide and Christian Marclay , perform together in New York for the first time in over a decade. Marclay, one of the world's leading artists and winner of the 54th Venice Biennale Golden Lion Award, pushed the boundaries of musical creation when he pioneered the use of the turntable as a musical instrument. Otomo, electroacoustic improvisation musician and free jazz guitarist, earned an international reputation as a central figure in Japan's avant-garde music scene. Together, these unconventional "turntablists" will again push to the extreme what is possible with turntables and records.

Cash bar opens at 6:30 pm.

Pre-Concert Talk: The Art of Noise
November 19, 5 PM
In an exploration of their artistic careers, Christian Marclay and Otomo Yoshihide are joined by musician, writer and curator Alan Licht. Together, they examine the past, present and future of non-music musical movements in Japan, America and across the globe. Moderator David Novak , Assistant Professor of Music at the University of California at Santa Barbara, will begin the discussion with a presentation on the experimental music scene in Japan.

Otomo's Installation: without records
Thursday, November 17-Sunday, November 20
Otomo's computer operated installation--a series of empty turntables set up to produce a variety of sounds--created as an homage to Christian Marclay and exhibited at museums and galleries throughout Japan in recent years, will be on view in Japan Society's public space for New Yorkers to see and hear. Free and open to the public .
