Biography:
Genres: Alternative/Indie, Electronica/Dance, Rock

Christian Marclay (born 1955) is an American visual artist and composer based in New York. Marclay's work explores connections between sound, noise, photography, video, and film. A pioneer of using gramaphone records and turntables as musical instruments to create sound collage, Marclay is, in the words of critic Thom Jurek, perhaps the "unwitting inventor of turntablism." His own use of turntables and records, beginning in the mid-1970s, was developed independently of but roughly parallel to hip hop's use of the instrument.
