Christian Marclay (born January 11, 1955) is a visual player and composer. He holds both American and Swiss nationality.
Marclay’s deed explores contacts between sound, noise, photography, video, and film. A explorer of using gramophone history and turntables as musical instruments to Make sound collages, Marclay is, in the words of critic Thom Jurek, perhaps the “unwitting inventor of turntablism.” His own use of turntables and records, beginning in the late 1970s, was developed independently of but all but parallel to hip hop’s use of the instrument.

All quotes from Christian Marclay sorted alphabetically:
If the music in a groove fits with what you're playing, then play it, if not, then you can play it backwards. If that doesn't work, you try it at a different speed. If it really doesn't work you just break it. The whole ritual to put a record on a turntable just to listen to it, I don't do that too often.
