Paul Miller aka DJ Spooky-"Rhythm Science"

Based on his award-winning collection of essays, "Rhythm Science" (MIT Press, 2004), Miller explores the hidden connections between collage-based aesthetics and the politics of perception. He unpacks some of the issues faced by contemporary artists, such as intellectual property, and the ways that art navigates the complex culture of digital media. The talk will be accompanied by historic texts, rare audio recordings, and films to demonstrate the relationship between text and art in a multimedia context. Tickets: $12 general admission; $8 members, students, and seniors. Tickets go on sale to ICA Associate Level Members and above Nov. 7, general public Nov. 21.

"DJ Spooky, aka Paul D. Miller, is a force of nature. An incredibly prolific DJ, composer, scholar, and "big idea" theoretician, Miller's Rhythm Science (MIT press, 2004) is a treatise on the role sampling technology has played in transforming culture and our view of art and reality. Or, as the book's promotional website puts it: "taking the DJ's mix as template, [Miller] describes how the artist, navigating the innumerable ways to arrange the mix of cultural ideas and objects that bombard us, uses technology and art to create something new and expressive and endlessly variable." A must read (well, in my book)." -- from los amigos de durutti

Can. Not. Wait. Consider purchasing Paul's "Rhythm Science" (w/ accompanying audio CD) b/f the event if you've not yet read / heard it. An amazing work.


Hey - FYI - this is a talk - DJ Spooky will be dj'ing events at the ICA on the Friday and Saturday after the event.

enfa -- thanks. As much as I'm looking forward to the Spooky's lecture, Saturday's "live sampling" of a string trio, while mixing in Gotan Project, Radiohead, etc, etc, should be quite awesome.
