DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid collaborates with leading contemporary violinist Bora Yoon, to explore the intersection of classical strings and DJ technique. Along with generative video art composed live by DJ Spooky, the piece is a hip mix of heavy beats and string melodies from two of the leading lights in New
York?s contemporary music scene. The piece premiered at the 2006 Sons d?Hiver festival in Paris.
Paul D. Miller is a conceptual artist, writer, and musician working in New York. His written work has appeared in The Village Voice, The Source, Artforum, Raygun, Rap Pages, Paper Magazine, and a host of other periodicals. Miller?s first collection of essays, Rhythm Science, was published by MIT Press in April
2004, and was included in several year-end lists of the best books of 2004, including the Guardian (UK) and Publishers Weekly. In 2005, Sound Unbound, an anthology of writings on sound art and multi-media by contemporary cultural theorists will follow Rhythm Science.
Bora Yoon is a multi-instrumentalist, performance artist, and composer with a twisted musical identity that spans the classical, avant-garde, electronic, folk, jazz, and sound design realms, garnering awards from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and Billboard, Arion Music Awards, and a music video
broadcast on MTV Networks. A rare crossover musician with skills ranging on the piano, electric violin, guitar, she siphons instrumental nuances into the vocal medium enhanced w/ live samples and loops, making her NYC?s late night go-to girl for musical architecture for collaborators and composers of the genre gamut. Operatic and iconoclastic, she geeked out at Ithaca College, Northwestern University, Berklee College of Music, recently completing an artist residency in Devon, England where she collaborated with multimedia artist Emile Bennett
(DCA, STEIM) to create generative vocal music with original software design.
