Terre Thaemlitz (JP)

The Laurence Rassel Show

In 2006, Laurence Rassel and Terre Thaemlitz were commissioned by a German public radio station to produce an electroacoustic radio drama about feminist anonymity, transgendered authorship... and murder. Cancelled due to content issues, Rassel and Thaemlitz self-released the project and have since continued their public conversations in increasingly undocumented and offline settings.

DJ Sprinkles

DJ Sprinkles is the deep house DJ persona of Terre Thaemlitz. Sprinkles is unconcerned with mass appeal, and focuses on sniper-sets aimed at a long gone generation of angry and depressed queer HIV/AIDS activists, unafraid to cry on the dancefloor.

Terre Thaemlitz Ambient DJ Set

In addition to her DJ Sprinkles persona, back in 1993 Terre Thaemlitz frequently DJ-ed at New York's first regular all-ambient party, Electric Lounge Machine. In lieu of her usual long-form audio-video and piano performances at European festivals, Thaemlitz will give a rare ambient DJ performance.
