Theo Parrish

As anyone who has experienced the work of Theo Parrish, this consummate architect of sound envelopes the listener, and transmits new perspectives on club sonics. Theo's musical expression fuses the rhythmic, disco-based pulse of Chicago house with the modernist motorik soul of Detroit techno; at the same time pointing to a lineage in black music that runs directly from Sun Ra to Sound Signature. “Jazz spawned house music, jazz spawned hip hop, jazz spawned funk and they all reflect back into that,” says Theo. In this talk at the 2005 RBMA in Seattle, Theo explores the raw, soulful roots of house music — So if you want to see the future then you've come to the right teleporter.
