DJ J.Period
Josh Kun

A live DJ mix of music and words, this performance explores the aesthetics of the crossfade. Crossfader is a multipart forum that features individuals who venture beyond the constraints of genre and style. “The crossfader is the toggle on a DJ mixer that allows you to move between the music on one input and the music on another. It lets you mix without erasing; combine without destroying—to juggle and sustain difference,” writes Kun.

J. Period is hailed as one of “the world’s top DJs” by The New York Times and recruited for remix and production work by Grammy-winners Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, and The Roots. J. Period is one of the music industry’s most respected DJs/Remixers.

Josh Kun, writer, USC professor, and cultural polymath, joins SMMoA’s Collection of Ideas series as Resident Collector. Kun uses music as a magnet to attract, mix, and connect diverse communities.
