Hosted by dj sniff
December 10–16, 2023

As a technique to spontaneously compose and recompose music using only prerecorded material, DJing is improvisational, compositional, and electroacoustic. dj sniff presents a one-week program featuring Mariam Rezaei from Newcastle, UK, SlowPitchSound from Toronto, and DJ (Rex Chen) from Taichung. All positioned outside of traditional DJ practice, the four experimental turntablists from around the globe (who have not previously met) collaborate on a mixtape to be released in a limited edition of 100.

Artists: dj sniff, Mariam Rezaei, Slowpitchsound, DJ 誠意重 (Rex Chen)
