    Marclay physically manipulates a wide variety of stylistically "meaningful" music, test tones, and sound effects recordings as well as surface scratches, clicks, skips and pops in his richly layered, transforming mixes. He has said that "in my work, the process is very important, to be able to see it and hear it", and this opportunity is provided in close detail as multiple cameras scan every movement of his engrossing, surreal performance. In a thought-provoking interview, he explains his "record without a cover" meant to age and over time (similar to Marcel Duchamp's "Large Glass"), how he marks and cuts the records ("scores") for his performances, describes the Guitar Drag, his visual works, and reminds listeners of the ephemerality of music. Initially a student at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, Christian Marclay became more fascinated by the energy of punk rock music and the aesthetics of performance art as practiced by artists like Vito Acconci and Joseph Beuys. In 1980, he organized a festival called Eventworks to explore the influence of rock music on the art world, and began to make improvised performances with thrift store records to which he would attach objects to loop the tracks. In 1979, he discovered old audio-visual department-style turntables manufactured by Califone, and these became his "instruments". Produced by Jim Staley Directed by Matt Mehlan

        The final episode of Subsonics reflects on the adventurous music of turntable artist and guitar player Otomo Yoshihide of Japan. Sweden’s eccentric performance installation artist Leif Elggren experiments with drone like sounds created from copper pipes in collaboration with a long dead Swedish Monarch, while the minimal electro acoustic soundscapes of Francisco Lopez from Madrid are also explored. The Subsonics series concludes with the black humour and electronic operatic-punk music of the all male band Fuckhead. The Austrian based band whose naked, tattooed members dive head first into the football scrum of male behaviour.
