Christian Marclay wikipedia. . . . .

(Marclay) made further abrasive use of records. He covered gallery floors with them, so that visitors to a show created random scratch-compositions just by walking in the door. He also shattered records and made new ones from carefully joined but mismatched fragments. Thus, Beethoven, The Beatles and nursery rhymes might share grooves in a vinyl version of the D.J.-style mixing and sampling that are now Mr. Marclay's primary performance medium.
- Holland Cotter, The New York Times, October 13th 2003

Performer, sculptor, and sound artist Christian Marclay has been experimenting, composing and performing with phonograph records and turntables since 1979. As a musician, he was one of the first to use records and turntables as a medium for performance and improvisation. Mixing a wide variety of LPs on multiple turntables, fragmenting and repeating sounds, altering speeds, playing records backwards, spinning, throwing, scratching, and otherwise manipulating records to create his unique "theater of found sound," Marclay's extreme DJ manipulations predate by two decades the turntablists of today.
