Born June 13, 1935 like her later husband Christo. She first met him in Paris in 1958, when he had just fled from the communistic Bulgaria.
While she was eduated in Switzerland and France and finished her academic studies of latin and philosophy in 1952, he was studying arts at the Fine Arts Academy in Sofia and in Vienna. In 1964 they moved to New York, where they developed steadily growing ideas.
Wrapping was their topic.
In 1961 they wrapped barrels of oil in Cologne.
In 1969 they wrapped a part of a coast in Australia.
And in 2005 they made “The Gates” in New York’s Central Park.
It is said Jeanne-Claude and Christo often took separate airplanes. If one airplane crashed and one of them died the other one would be able to maintain their work. Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon passed away on wednesday November 18, 2009 in a Hospital in New York.
Everybody knows what DJ’s do: putting vinyl on the turntables an mix tracks into each other. This is basically the idea of DJing. The four guys Crazy-B, DJ Pone, DJ Need, and Little Mike (going under the name “Birdy Nam Nam”) are moving DJing at least one step beyond. They use their turntables more like instruments with not just mixing one track into another, they are mixing sounds into new compositions. With their styles they won several prices like the DMC Technics World TEAM Price in 2002.
We strongly recommend to watch those videos to understand what they are doing. The first is pure fun, the second allows more technical insight, and the third video is just raving the crowd and surreptitious advertising for Apple. Enjoy and don’t forget to buy their albums. You still know what buying music means, don’t you?
