11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 20, 2011
Format: Hardcover
As the encyclopedia defines the author, 'Paul D. Miller known by his stage name DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid (born in 1970), is a Washington DC-born electronic and experimental hip hop musician whose work is often called by critics or his fans as "illbient" or "trip hop". He is a turntablist, a producer, a philosopher, and an author. He borrowed his stage name from the character The Subliminal Kid in the novel Nova Express by William S. Burroughs. He is a Professor of Music Mediated Art at the European Graduate School.' In this strikingly original and well-designed book this amazing man makes his case for a worldwide appreciation for the majesty and complex history of the Antarctica. In writing this book, an aspect of his multi-dimensional performance art TERRA NOVA: SINFONIA ANTARCTICA, Miller combines interviews, with Princeton Professor Elena Glasberg on his TERRA NOVA project and with Tobias C. Van Veen about the concept of Afrofuturism, historical photographs of the many expeditions to the Antarctica, pure graphic design informed by Miller's music, maps, and important observations about climate change and the entire realm of global ecology and the future of this planet.Read more ›
