Description

Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky is a composer, multimedia artist and writer whose work immerses audiences in a blend of genres, global culture, and environmental and social issues.

EXPLORER I REMIX is a musical journey inspired by the newly restored and digitized data from the historic 1958 satellite mission by physicist James Van Allen, which lead to the discovery of the earth’s radiation belt. An original electronic score performed by DJ Spooky on his custom-designed iPad DJ app, and featuring the local string ensemble Red Cedar Chamber Music, EXPLORER I REMIX is a musical collage at the intersection of art and science, seen through DJ Spooky’s unique perspective as a composer, DJ, and conceptual artist.
