Haus Wien
am Kempelenpark, Vienna, Austria

The Center for Experimental Lectures invites you to Haus Wien on September 3rd at 4:30 pm for presentations of new work by Kamron Hazel and Nat Marcus. But of course, waxing over metronomic riddims, field recordings, and a syncopated ghetto blaster, Kamron will be giving a mistranslation of his elders' wisdom, a lecture against having new experiences. By means of two turntables, a set of poems, citations and samples, Nat Marcus will give a lecture on the home that house music provides for her.

This program will be live and in-person, without remote broadcast. Video documentation, and a transcription of this event will be made available online after the event at the Center for Experimental Lectures archive.

Marcus has participated in poetry readings and performances in a variety of venues including Contemporary Fine Arts Berlin (Berlin, DE), Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek (Copenhagen, DK), HÖR Radio (Berlin, DE), and Karlin Studios (Prague, CZ).
