Maria Chavez

The event will be closed with a club-oriented DJ set by turntablist and sound artist Maria Chavez. Born in Lima, Peru and based in NYC, Maria Chávez is best known as an abstract turntablist, sound artist and DJ. Coincidence, chance & failures are themes that unite her book objects, sound sculptures, installations & other works with her improvised solo turntable performance practice. Her album, “Maria Chavez PLAYS Stefan Goldmann’s Ghost hemiola” was nominated for a Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik in January of 2020.

Maria Chavez will perform at Skaņu mežs as part of the sound art project tekhnē, supported by the European Union.
