dj sniff (Takuro Mizuta Lippit) believes in the instrumental autonomy of
the turntable and the musicianship of the DJ. He is a turntable musician
working in the field of improvised and experimental music. His music
focuses on the live reconstruction and narratization of the
phonographically amplified - the music, the sound, the technology and the
past. To achieve this, he uses a unique setup consisting of hand-made
hardware interfaces and a custom Max/MSP software along with one turntable
and DJ mixer. He is also a concert/event curator for electronic music and
a researcher of music technology.
Since 2005 he has been involved with STEIM's (Studio for
Electro-Instrumental Music, Amsterdam) R&D lab. From 2007 on, he is
STEIM's Artistic Director, curating public events and representing the
institution through performances and lectures.
dj sniff regularly performs with computer musician Yutaka Makino as Audile
and with saxophonist Keir Neuringer and Bassist Raed Yassin.
This lecture is free and open to the public (though space is limited)

In addition to Takuro Mizuta Lippit's talk at Pratt, he has organized a
