Publisher Comments:

The conceptual artist Paul Miller, also known as DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid, delivers a manifesto for rhythm science — the creation of art from the flow of patterns in sound and culture, "the changing same." Taking the DJ's mix as template, he describes how the artist, navigating the innumerable ways to arrange the mix of cultural ideas and objects that bombard us, uses technology and art to create something new and expressive and endlessly variable.

Technology provides the method and model; information on the web, like the elements of a mix, doesn't stay in one place. And technology is the medium, bridging the artist's consciousness and the outside world. Miller constructed his DJ Spooky persona ("spooky" from the eerie sounds of hip-hop, techno, ambient, and other music that he plays) as a conceptual art project, but then came to see it as the opportunity for "coding a generative syntax for new languages of creativity."

For example: "Start with the inspiration of George Herriman's "Krazy Kat comic strip. Make a track invoking his absurd landscapes...What do tons and tons of air pressure moving in the atmosphere sound like? Make music that acts a metaphor for that kind of immersion or density." Or, for an online "remix" of two works by Marcel Duchamp: "I took a lot of his material written on music and flipped it into a DJ mix of his visual material — with him rhyming!"

Tracing the genealogy of rhythm science, Miller cites sources and influences as varied as Ralph Waldo Emerson ("all minds quote"), Grandmaster Flash, W. E. B. Dubois, James Joyce, and Eminem. "The story unfolds while the fragments coalesce," he writes.

Review:

"DJ/conceptual artist/author Paul Miller's pseudonym is at once an arcane reference to William S. Burroughs's Nova Express and a childlike recognition of the sometimes eerie, disembodied sounds he gathers — an immediate indicator of the gleeful enthusiasm with which both his 'mixes' and his first book juxtapose cultures high and low, new and old, avant-garde and 'street.'" Publishers Weekly
