Arctic RhythmsPaul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky
Experience the Polar Regions as never before through the eclectic artistry of composer, author, musician, and National Geographic 2014 Emerging Explorer Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky. Long a legend in the hip hop world as a master turntablist, Miller is a sonic artist who hears music in almost everything; from visual forms and economic theory to the great outdoors.
In December 2007 and January 2008, Miller undertook an expedition to Antarctica to shoot a film and create an acoustic portrait of the rapidly changing continent. This led to his celebrated book The Book of Ice, being published in 2011 and the album Of Water and Ice in 2013. Then, in summer 2014 and sponsored by the environmental organisation Sierra Club, Miller took a trip to the Arctic Circle that inspired the second volume of music, Arctic Rhythms.
With this Spiegeltent performance Miller, accompanied by a violinist and a cellist, will create an evocative multimedia trip to the Arctic landscape for the audience, juxtaposing images with live and recorded hip hop, electronic, and minimalist music to create an unforgettable experience.
