About the performance

Shiva Feshareki presents a highly physical, live turntable composition that she forms in the moment. Using her trademark turntabling techniques, she deconstructs a variety of sounds from club, dance, classical and drone into new forms and perspectives, using nothing other than the original vinyl material. Expect deeply experimental sonic manipulations that bend time and play with space and perspective, transforming a variety of sounds into new shapes that reveal its sculptural depths.
