DJ Spooky

On Monday, October 14, the Digital Justice Lab brought Paul Miller, aka DJ Spooky, to Dartmouth College to speak about his latest composition Quantopia and to lead a student masterclass.

In addition to sharing parts of Quantopia, Miller took the audience on a journey through the founding algorithms of the internet, the histories of sound production and sound’s relationship to place, and explored some of the key themes throughout his work. Miller is currently focused on quantum physics, the politics of data and energy production and the ways that music can be a political force.

During the masterclass, students asked Miller questions about the democratization of music-making technology, the challenge translating science into music and art, and how he integrates his individual political practice into the projects he selects.
