What: Turntables, technology and music theory will collide when Paul D.
Miller, better known as DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid, presents a
discussion/demonstration preceding his world premiere performance of
"Video Soul: Wattstax to the Avant Garde."
The lecture/demo will take place on Friday February 8 at 3 pm in Great Hall of
the Carolina Union. The World Premiere of "Video Soul: WattStax to the Avant
Garde" will follow on Saturday evening February 9 at Duke University.
During his multimedia presentation, Miller will use historical texts and rare
audio and film recordings to illustrate the history of digital art and media.
Using the DJ's mix as a template, he will discuss how today's artists can
rearrange the cultural ideas and objects that bombard us to produce something
new and expressive. Miller will also discuss technology's impact on DJ culture
and the issues that arise from it, such as intellectual property rights and
ownership of ideas.
