Sour Mash was composed by George Lewis and Marina Rosenfeld as a recording collaboration for multiple playback recombinations. Their fruitful partnership produced vinyl records intended to be further manipulated in their “Sour Mash” live sets, and also as creative material to be further used by other musicians and DJs.

A member of the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians), George Lewis’s work as composer, improvisor, and performer explores electronic music, multimedia installations, and text-sound works. His awards include the MacArthur Fellowship, and he has published and recorded prolifically. Lewis is currently the Edwin H. Case Professor of American Music at Columbia University.

Turntablist and multi-media artist, Marina Rosenfeld, creates large-scale performance works and installations. Her work has been commissioned by the Whitney Biennial, Tate Modern, The Kitchen, Merce Cunningham Dance Company, and her music presented at festivals such as Mutek, Donaueschingen, and Ars Electronica.
