DJ Spooky Brings Turntables and Tech to U-Me
Internationally renowned DJ, remix artist, and cultural critic lectures and performs on campus

On September 13 and 14, 2005, Paul D. Miller, AKA DJ Spooky, brings his fresh perspective and sounds to the University of Maine campus in an event co-sponsored by the Honors College, the New Media Program, and other campus organizations.

Lecture: "Rhythm Science"
Tuesday, Sep. 13   
8 pm
Minsky Recital Hall

Miller will present a manifesto for rhythm science--the creation of art from the flow of patterns in sound and culture, "the changing same." Taking the Dj's mix as template, he describes how today's digital artists can re-arrange the mix of cultural ideas and objects that bombard us--from the vintage cinema of D.W. Griffith to the latest beats from the hip-hop charts--to produce something new and expressive and endlessly variable.

Concert/Dance Party
Wednesday, Sep. 14  
8 pm
Wells Commons

This live performance showcases DJ Spooky's trademark mix of sound and software, with warm-up performance by Prehistoric Avant-garde (the Marswalkers with Renaud Patard).



DJ Spooky is an internationally renowned turntablist and cultural critic. His work has been seen at performance venues such as Spoleto and Lincoln Center, at art venues such as the Whitney Biennial and Andy Warhol Museum, and in publications such as ArtByte, the Village Voice, and MIT Press, which just released his book Rhythm Science (included on several best book lists of 2004).

September's events mark DJ Spooky's return to Maine, where he studied philosophy and French literature at Bowdoin College.






Organized by the Honors College with support from the Cultural Affairs/Distinguished Lecture Series, University of Maine Student Government, Progressive Students Alliance, Multicultural Programs, the Associate Dean of Students and Community Life, and the New Media program.

ALL EVENTS ARE FREE.
