Christian Marclay is a visual artist and musical composer based in New York, who is exploring the pattern languages connecting sound, photography, video, and film.

Marclay uses records and turntables in musical performances, and was one of the earliest and one of the most notable musicians to do so outside a hip hop context - he is "the most influential (turntable) figure outside hip hop." [1] (http://www.speech.kth.se/~hansen/turntablemusic.pdf) Marclay sometimes manipulates or damages records to produce continuous loops and skips, and has said he generally prefers inexpensive used records purchased at thrift shops.

Some of Marclay's musical pieces are carefully recorded and edited plunderphonics-style; he is also active in free improvisation.

He has performed and recorded both solo and in collaboration with musicians such as John Zorn, William Hooker, Otomo Yoshihide, Butch Morris and others. Christian Marclay is a former professor of video collage and sound at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland where he conducts a summer workshop.
