Homies, Posts

All that scratchin’ is making me itch…And this man has figured it all out! While Alex Sonnenfeld a.k.a. Hix Boson is a true master of his craft and a great performer, he is also a scratch professor! One, he teaches at Q-Bert’s Scratch University, an online music school for becoming turntablists. Two, he has developed a unique notation system for scratch music, called S-Notation, which is based on the standard Western notation system.

If you want to know more about Alex, check out this interview, where he also reports on his exchange with Karlheinz Stockhausen, one of the most important composers of the 20th century.
