Video: Christian Marclay at Finsbury Town Hall

by Christian Marclay on 18 August 2006

'Shuffle' is an artwork-cum-book that takes on the form of a deck of playing cards. Emulating a Fluxus box, a John Cage 'chance operation' or Eames' House of Cards, the deck of cards, each representing an image of musical notation as captured in quotidian life - is intended to be used as a spontaneous musical score. To coincide with the publication Shuffle in print, Marclay invited a lineup of top musicians to interpret the score and bring Shuffle to musical and performative life.
