DJ Spooky's performance mixes digital music, social change
Paul Miller (aka DJ Spooky) discussed his recent work exploring digital media, music and the ways that art can open minds and help people gain new perspectives on issues like climate change in a Black Box performance on Feb. 6, 2013.
He performed his mix of electronic compositions (using his own DJ app and wall to wall graphics) accompanied by CU College of Music cellist Megan Knapp and violinist Emily Lenck. Miller is a multimedia digital artist, musician, composer, remixer, author of "The Book of Ice" and the first artist-in-residence at NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. His visit is a collaboration between the ATLAS Institute, the Program for Writing and Rhetoric and the President's Fund for the Humanities.
