Mixology was first produced as work of video art (2010, 11’4), in which two black spinning discs painted with white Islamic calligraphic hadiths appear as records on a DJ’s mixing table. The sound is a “ready-made fragments of classical, orchestral music and improvised electronic sounds, together with disconcer- ting noises generated by the turning discs and other, at times unidentifiable, processes” (writ- ten by Siobhán Shilton, University of Bristol).
