|Paul D. Miller a.k.a. DJ Spooky
|Paul D. Miller is a Washington DC-born electronic and experimental hip-hop musician, producer, and author. He is also a Professor of Music Mediated Art, European Graduate School, Switzerland. DJ Spooky's multimedia performance piece Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica was commissioned by BAM for the 2009 Next Wave Festival. With video projections and a score composed by DJ Spooky, Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica is a portrait of a rapidly transforming continent. Drawing on the continent’s rich history of inspiring exploration and artistic endeavors, Paul has put together his own multimedia, multidisciplinary study of Antactica. Book of Ice is one aspect of this ongoing project. In light of climate change and tireless human enterprise to be present everywhere on the planet, Miller uses Antarctica as a point on entry for contemplating humanity’s relationship with the natural world.
In late 2009, the Naihné People of Tanna on the Island of Vanuatu invited Paul to form an artists retreat within their remote eastern territory. In early 2011, Vanuatu Pacifica Foundation began building Tanna Center for the Arts in this beautiful and isolated part of the island. The artists retreat will function as a carbon negative, culturally supportive demonstration model, incorporating a digital media lab and island-restorative education center to aid the goals expressed by the people of this tropical paradise
