Paul D. Miller / Dj Spooky: Sound Unbound
Dienstag, 14. Dezember 2010, 19 Uhr, Aula

Sound Unbound is Paul D. Miller’s follow up to his award winning
first book Rhythm Science (MIT Press, 2004). First and foremost,
Sound Unbound is an anthology – it’s a collection of thirty-six
essays that focus on the role of the artist, composer, and writer in
a world that is becoming more interconnected every day.
In a lecture format, exploring the overall theme of sound in
contemporary art, digital media, and composition, Miller reconstructs
the history of sound and recorded media by several of the most well
known artists of their field – ranging from Brian Eno, Steve Reich,
Moby, Chuck D, and Pierre Boulez, to artists, writers and
theoreticians like Jonathan Lethem, Bruce Sterling, Manuel Delanda,
and even Islamic culture’s relationship to hip hop with essay by
media activist and artist Naeem Mohaimen. In using the essays that
are in Sound Unbound, Miller makes the lecture format a cross between
a formal exploration of the issues Sound Unbound focused on, and the
remix concept that drives much of the book. It’s a rip-mix-burn-lecture.
Rhythm Science author Paul Miller aka DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid
asks artists to describe their work and compositional strategies in
their own words. These are reports from the front lines on the role
of sound and digital media in an information-based society. Miller’s
lecture will be an hour, and is accompanied by his use of many
historic texts, rare audio recordings and films, to demonstrate the
complex relationship between text and art in a multimedia context.

In collaboration with the Weltkulturen Museum Frankfurt am Main.
Die Veranstaltung findet in englischer Sprache statt.
