SAMPLER - CULTURE CLASH*


Sampler -- Culture Clash brings together the worlds of embroidery and
dj-ing through the common word Sampler. David and Jason will present
work in progress created over the last 8 months through collaborating
with embroiderers, dj's, beat-boxers, performance poets, filmmakers and
curators from the V&A and the Embroiderers' Guild. The aim is to
develop new interdisciplinary work mixing stitch, the word, pattern,
sound and performance combining both analogue and digital technologies,
remaining true to the sampling philosophy of both cultures, to trial,
experiment and mix things up. The starting point of the project has
been the embroidered textile sampler archives of the V&A and the
Embroiderers' Guild. The research and development of Sampler -- Culture
Clash has been supported by the Crafts Council through its Spark Plug
Curators' scheme.


David and Jason will give a short presentation on their research to
date, including a live performance. Their research has included
transposing elements of antique and contemporary embroidery samplers
into sound and new written, spoken and stitched word and pattern,
through using music software such as Reason, Ableton Live and hardware
including AKAI MPC's.

They would like to collaborate with other members of the Thursday Club
to develop a real-time environment mixing analogue and digital
technologies where you can turn stitch/image to sound, sound to pattern
and back into stitch/image -- building an ever changing cycle,
manipulated by the creators/performers.

DAVID LITTLER is Director of London Printworks Trust, the UK's leading
resource for experimental printed textiles. Since the age of 16 he has
worked as a dj and club promoter and spends far too much money on
records. www.londonprintworks.com

Composer and Visual Artist. He DJ's extensively around the world and
plays a mixture of genres including Electronica, Hip Hop, World, Asian
