Raz Mesinai's "String Quartet For Four Turntables" is a composition for string quartet (comprised of 2 violins, 1 viola, and 1 cello), with each instrument recorded separately in the studio and then pressed onto 12" vinyl. The 12"s are played by 2 dj's who each have 2 copies of the 12"s and 2 turntables. It was first performed by Dj Olive and Dj Toshio Kajiwara at the Lincoln Center Festival in New York City in 2000 but was never recorded or released until now. Mesinai insisted on letting the vinyl sit, uncovered, for 9 years (so that the crackles and pops would be more present) before finally re recording the piece exclusively for Dub War. In this version Mesinai performs it himself, focusing on the tuning of the turntables, creating intense dissonant textures."
