Boomkat Product Review:
DJ Sniff (Takuro Mizuta Lippit) is a turntable musician working in the field of improvised and experimental music. His music focuses on the live reconstruction and narrativization of the phonographically amplified - the music, the sound, the technology and the past. He thus tries to reflect his influences from Hip-Hop and Free Jazz not in a stylistic manner but through an exploration of a distinct instrumental voice and practice. In Tokyo, he was active as a DJ in the underground electronic music scene and formed a collective called SmashTV which organized genre-mixing events. In 2002, he moved to New York to pursue graduate studies in computer music and physical computing at NYU's ITP. Since 2005 he has been involved with STEIM's (Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music, Amsterdam) R&D lab, becoming its Artistic Director in 2007, guiding the institution's creative output and representing it's activities through performing and lecturing around the world. In this - his debut release Takuro mixes his own experimental sounds beds with the jazz and free jazz craze that stormed Japan in the 60s and 70s. .
