DJ Migma
CAMP scholarship

15.05.21 29.08.21

DJ Migma (Miguel Masllorens) is a DJ and sound artist. His work focuses on experimentation with turntables and vinyl records, with proposals that combine elements and resources of appropriationism, improvisation, noise, performance and accusmatic.

ARTIST STATEMENT

“The approach to turntables and vinyl records, from the conception of sound instruments, implies working in an archeology of the media due to the express documentary and archival nature of this type of medium. Artistically articulated and deepening the exploration of its possibilities, these anachronistic devices and found objects –with their range of possibilities within the spectrum of sound– become powerful poetic triggers that challenge the present and collective memory through multiple resignifications of our auditory culture.”

ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP

DJ Migma received in 2021 a grant from CAMP in association with Fundación´ace to take the online course Sound, Language & Position, taught by Antye Greie (AGF). In the words of DJ Migma: “the course was very productive insofar as its continuous reflection on the possible activist aspects and political discourses related to artistic creation within the complex scenarios that we are currently going through in the world. At the same time, it allowed me develop an exercise and collaborative work with the participants (artists and researchers from remote places), which would have been practically impossible if the virtual encounter had not been generated.”

CAMP is an institution functioning in a refurbished 19th century hotel located in the French Pyrenees, at an altitude of 750 m, 10 km away from the Spanish border and surrounded by snow-capped peaks, waterfalls and forests. CAMP offers five-day sessions of art, music, writing and artivism. Its programs combine work in its equipped facilities with projects carried out in the nature of the mountains.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
