Visual artist and composer Christian Marclay, who is based in London and New York, explores the juxtaposition between sound recording, photography, video, and film. “I've always been interested in how sound is visualized,” he once explained, which is not surprising given his work transforms sounds and music into visible, physical form. As early as 1979, he began his exploration into sound and art through performances with turntables and phonograph records to create his “theater of found sound,” influenced by Marcel Duchamp. His innovative works and fresh voice have inspired an entire generation of musicians, artists, and theorists.
