      Maria Chávez - Performance + Workshop

      Born in Lima, Peru and based in NYC, María Chávez is best known as an abstract turntablist, sound artist, and DJ. Her work combines recorded sounds from vinyl records with the electroacoustic sounds of vinyl and needle in various deteriorating phases. Accidents, coincidence, and failures are themes that unite her sound sculptures, installations, and other works with her improvised solo turntable performance practice. María Chávez will perform and demonstrate her practice on Tuesday, June 4th at 7PM. Tickets for this Performance + Workshop: $5 for BMCM+AC members + students w/ID / $8 non-members Chávez, with the participation of the audience, will also be performing her rendition of John Cage's 33 1/3 on Wednesday, June 6th from 12 noon - 10PM. Drop in to participate in this piece, first conceived of by Cage in 1969. The original score simply stipulated that the gallery be filled with about a dozen record players and two- to three-hundred vinyl records. Museum visitors are encouraged to act as DJs and create a musical mix by playing records freely and thus performing the work.

      Cost: 5.00 to 8.00
