New York-based turntablist, performance and multimedia artist
Marina Rosenfeld (USA, 1968) was emblematic of artists who used music as
an element within a larger representational space.
In 1994 she formed the Sheer Frost Orchestra, a 17-woman ensemble for 12 electric guitars plucked with nail-polish bottles (usually while the women were lying in uncomfortable positions) and 5 laptops (that manipulate the sounds produced by the 12 guitarists), as documented on
Drop, Hop, Drone, Scratch, Slide &A for Anything (april 2001 - Charhizma, 2002).
Theforestthegardenthesea - Music From Fragment Opera (Charhizma, 1999)
consisted of two jams for turntable and other instruments.
A Water's Wake (Quakebasket, 2003) was a collaboration with Toshio Kajiwara and Tim Barnes.
More music for turntables is documented on Joy of Fear (2005).
Audio installations include:
Cephissus Landscape (2002),
Anti-Warhol Movement in 16 Cues (2003),
and Teenage Lontano, i.e. Ligeti's Lontano sung by teenagers listening into their iPods within a performance of Rosenfeld music.
The visual and scenic elements tended to prevail over the audio element.
