    Paul D. Miller vs. Paul Rudolph

    1/23/2007 -- Paul D. Miller (aka DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid), lecturing at the Critical Imaginaries MED colloquium. Early 21st-century boho hipness mashing up with some late 20th-century brushammered concrete.

    This was a great session ... Paul lectured on his book Rhythm Science, as well as giving some thoughtful views on (to use his terminology), "Pattern Recognition" versus "Material Memory." He also gave out some CDs as well as shared some of his latest projects, including collaborations with Greg Lynn, Dave Lombardo (Slayer), Iannis Xenakis, Yoko Ono, and Thurston Moore.

    Not only that, but he was one of the nicest persons I've ever encountered: insanely talented, productive, and generous of intellect.

      he did a live performance here, mixing a live soundtrack of sorts to the notorious film 'birth of a nation'. sorry i missed it because all reports were that it was a sort of transcendental experience.

      Steven -- He showed clips of a similar performance he did in Athens near the Acropolis.

      yeah, i've seen him do similar performances on several occasions always extremely interesting. very academic. all the dance kids sorta look a little stumped by it though.
