I occasionally perform under my DJ alias, DJ Techné. Currently, I am working on an ongoing project entitled Dedications, where various phonogrooves (from jazz, hip-hop, and spoken word, to unusual recontextualized samples) are mélanged and collaged together to create polyvalent dedications to a host of musicians and poets. Hear William Blake, Sun Ra, Bob Dylan, Charlie “Bird” Parker (with Ontario songbirds), John G. Diefenbaker, John Coltrane, the poetry of The Four Horseman, among others, in new and exciting ways.
Equipment used in “live” performance:
- 2 Technics 1200s
- Traktor Z2 mixer/ Traktor Pro
- Mackie line mixer
- MPC Live (previously MPC 1000)
- Korg Volca FM
- and a slew of records
