Sound artist Maria Chavez's Of Technique: Chance Procedures On Turntable serves as a how-to guide documenting the past 10 years of her abstract turntable practice. This book is Chavez's first object about her sound work since 2004.
Essays are accompanied with illustrations by the artist which show the various hand positions of different techniques. Images in the book are removable so the reader can create their own turntable compositions. By removing the illustrations, the book changes from a how-to manual into a piece of documentation about a specific abstract turntable practice developed over 10 years.
Chavez also designed one of our Wire limited edition T-shirts. See here
