Little preview of my upcoming Rock Showcase. All patterns are played from the score (turntablism notation which was invented by Alex Sonnenfeld).

Concealed behind the art figure of Hix Boson it is Alexander Sonnenfeld who is probably better known as a developer of the S-Notation, a written notation model that covers all manual motions of a turntablist's instrument through the systematic representation of notation symbols.

Alex's work on S-Notation spanned 14 years, some of which he remained in ongoing exchange with the composer Professor Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007). Stockhausen is considered to be one of the most important music scientists of the 20th century for his work in electronic music, aleatory in serial composition and musical spatialization. Sonnenfeld developed his S-Notation into the thesis Bewegungslehre, a scientific music analysis of turntablism that is currently under review with various music scientists in Germany. His goal is to make turntable- and mixer-based music theory an accepted musical art form.

Since 2012 Alex has had a big priviledgeas an european turntablism artist to work for the renowned Qbert Skratch University in San Francisco as a Guest Professor. Furthermore, he became an official Stanton and Ortofon Artist and has been gathering additional experience as an support DJ for Wu-Tang-Clan, The Pharcyde, Paul Kalkbrenner, Bushido, Sido and many other artists. He gave 7 shows in 2 days for Stanton and Gibson during this year's Frankfurter Musikmesse in March 2014.
