10-22 December 2004
10.00-18.00 Sunday-Thursday
10.00-22.00 Friday-Saturday

The Sounds of Christmas is an annual project by Christian Marclay,
pioneer of the experimental turntable movement and leading artist
operating at the intersections of art and music. Reinventing this
work-in-progress for London, the artist will present his collection of
over 1,200 Christmas records as a publicly accessible archive,
alongside projections of the record covers and footage of previous
performances (exhibition open 10-22 December during gallery hours).

During the two-week installation, co-produced by Electra and Tate
Modern, noted DJs will create live remixes of their own selection from
Marclay's Christmas records. These recorded performances will create a
soundtrack for the space. Combining blatant sentimentality with
vanguard experimentation, Marclay suggests that the categories
distinguishing 'serious' music from its opposite are both arbitrary and
arcane.
