DJ Spooky: Forests, Electronics, and Composition

Thursday, January 14, 2016 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Composer, multimedia artist and author Paul D. Miller, a.k.a. DJ Spooky, is composing a Forest Symphony based on his four seasonal residencies at the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest. In this multi-media presentation, Miller will talk with musician / composer Dana Reason about his composition process, incorporating electronics and multimedia elements, and his experience in composing the “Forest Symphony.”

Miller is known for his genre-bending art, vast catalogue of music and work in social justice. He was the first artist-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and his work has appeared in the The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, The Venice Biennial for Architecture and other museums. Miller is currently the executive editor of Origin Magazine, which focuses on the intersection of art, yoga and new ideas. He is the author of Book of Ice, a multimedia, multidisciplinary study of Antarctica that contemplates climate change and humanity’s relationship with the natural world, as well as Rebirth of a Nation, performed by the Kronos Quartet.

Miller's composition is funded by a "Creative Heights" grant from the Oregon Community Foundation.
