Two experimental music giants, Otomo Yoshihide and Christian Marclay, perform together in New York for the first time in over a decade. Marclay, one of the world's leading artists and winner of the 54th Venice Biennale Golden Lion Award, pushed the boundaries of musical creation when he pioneered the use of the turntable as a musical instrument. Otomo, electroacoustic improvisation musician and free jazz guitarist, earned an international reputation as a central figure in Japan's avant-garde music scene. Together, these unconventional turntablists will again push to the extreme what is possible with turntables and records.
