Christian Marclay defines experimental, more than DJ Spooky could ever hope to. His eclectic definition of sound doesn't allow itself to be defined by barriers, but rather by the breadth and depth of its context. Without the breakdown of contemporary worship of the hi-fi, Christian Marclay would lie in the gutter with the other gone by the wayside concepts of musical, and emotional sound from the past.
Before writing this node, I had gotten rather drunk and incoherent, yet when seeing mister marclay perform, despite his degree of intoxication, which i would imagine is null, I feel able to transcend the feelings of inability, and able to see the inexpressible before me.
Like dj olive, Christian Marclay expands the mind and is not afraid to leave the embryonic state of sonically derivative landscape which we all partake in on a daily basis.
