Sound Unbound: DJ Spooky and the Digital Arts

Fri April 08 2011 3pm
SFU Woodward's Goldcorp Centre for the Arts (149 West Hastings Street)

Presented by the Chan Centre in Partnership with SFU Woodward’s

Paul D. Miller is highly regarded as a writer and conceptual artist, though he is probably best known under the moniker of his constructed persona, “DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid.” Miller has recorded a huge volume of music and has collaborated with a wide variety of musicians and composers from Metallica to Steve Reich, Yoko Ono to Pierre Boulez and Kronos Quartet to Killah Priest from Wu-Tang Clan.

In this artist talk, Miller reconstructs the history of sound and recorded media by several of the most well-known artists of their field – ranging from Brian Eno to Moby to Chuck D, as well as artists, writers and theoreticians. These are reports from the front lines on the role of sound and digital media in an information-based society.

The talk will be followed by a short Q&A which will be moderated by Zoë Druick, PhD Associate Professor, Undergraduate Chair, School of Communication at Simon Fraser University.
