A re-interpretation and re-imagining of turntable culture, Nicole Lizée’s new multimedia work House of Stylus (2016)* forms an immersive installation-like experience, integrating damaged and glitched film, stop-motion, silkscreen art, and two powerhouse performers: DJ P-Love (Paolo Kapunan) on turntables and Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa on piano. The two players interweave, collide, juggle material, meticulously synchronize, and even exchange roles and instruments twisting and transforming turntablism as it extends into the concert music world. This new work will be paired with two of Lizée’s earlier works – one for piano and glitch, Kubrick Études, and Cinemaism.

* World premiere, commissioned by Vancouver New Music.
