In his Stamps presentation renowned composer, turntablist, multimedia artist and writer Paul D. Miller (aka DJ Spooky), explores the theme of sound in contemporary art, digital media, and composition, reconstructing the history of sound and recorded media through works by Brian Eno, Steve Reich, Moby, Chuck D, Pierre Boulez, Jonathan Lethem, Bruce Sterling, Manuel Delanda, and Naeem Mohaimen. Using the essays that are in Miller’s recent book, Sound Unbound, Miller creates a rip-mix-burn-lecture, using historic texts and rare audio recordings and films, to demonstrate the complex relationship between text and art in a multimedia context.

With support from the University Musical Society (UMS) and the Department of Performing Arts Technology of the School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
