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. Miller’s award-winning book Rhythm Science (MIT Press 2004), was followed by Sound Unbound, an anthology about electronic music and digital media, The Book of Ice, an experiential visual and acoustic portrait of the Antarctic, and his most recent work The Imaginary App.

Miller has collaborated with a vast array of recording artists, ranging from Metallica to Chuck D; Steve Reich to Yoko Ono. His large scale, multimedia performance pieces include “Rebirth of a Nation,” “Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica,” and “Seoul Counterpoint.” In 2014, he was named a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, an honor recognizing visionaries at the forefront of global problem solving. 

While at Washington College, DJ Spooky collaborated with the Starr Center and SANDBOX to present two evening performances ARCTIC RHYTHMS and Rebirth of A Nation, demonstrated The Imaginary App in an afternoon workshop for students, and participated in an exhibition opening at SANDBOX.
