Yesterday I had my first engagement of my Taiwanese trip, a workshop at Digilog here in Taipei.
Digilog is a little shop that sells synthesisers (including modular), microphones and related equipment, along with books and CDs.
I was very happy with the workshop. I focussed on why I do what I do with turntables, and hopefully I conveyed some of my ideas and inspiration. It was also much more participatory than I’d anticipated – everyone had a go at playing with turntable settings, putting objects and records in different places, and a couple of people even smashed some records after I demonstrated the finer points of record-breaking technique!
I had some trouble showing some of the video clips I had planned to illustrate some of my discussion points, so I list them here for workshop participants who may be interested, and for everyone else, too:
Undecisive God – Angels (example of my experimental guitar work from 2001. Fan video – not made by me)
Many thanks to Frank and Sarah at Digilog, and to Betty Apple for putting us in touch. Thanks to Chun-liang for translating at the workshop.
