article imageVancouver: DJ Spooky to present work on Antarctica

Vancouver - His name is Paul D. Miller but a lot of people know him only as DJ Spooky. It's hard to describe what he does; some say he is a conceptual artist but they never tell us what that means. .
No matter. A Wikipedia entry has tried to explain it here. What is not in doubt however is that DJ Spooky is a film director, musician, artist and intellectual all mixed together.
The guy has produced a huge body of work including recorded music and collaboration with some of the music world's giants like Yoko Ono and Metallica. He has even written a well received book titled Rhythm Science. A writer in New Zealand has described him as "Einstein with a better haircut" and as a "streetwise black Tolstoy." Wow.
Anyway DJ Spooky will be in Vancouver soon to deliver a lecture and to present his latest work, a multimedia masterpiece on global warming in Antarctica which he stylistically calls Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica. Sinfonia comes with all the bells and whistles: sights and sounds of the little-known Antarctica environment recorded by Spooky himself. He spent some time there, immersing himself in the harsh habitat.
The Sinfonia show will be on Saturday April 9 at the Chan Centre's Telus Studio Theatre in Vancouver.
DJ Spooky's lecture on on sound in contemporary art, digital media and composition will take place Friday April 8 at SFU's Woodward's Goldcorp Centre for the Arts (149 West Hastings Street).
