SSR London - Maria Chavez Guest Lecture
Maria Chavez Guest Lecture
We were incredibly lucky at SSR London to be able to catch internationally renowned sound artist and turntablist Maria Chavez for a guest workshop when she was in London recently.

Based in NYC, and fresh from a new installation / performance piece at the Getty Museum in LA, Maria stopped by to show our 2nd year degree students about her random turntable techniques and embracing chance events, as well as giving valuable insight on her approach as an artist and how early rejections from the traditional DJ world were the making of her career.

This is Maria's second visit to SSR London and we wish her best on the rest of her European tour and hope to have her back soon.
