DJ Spooky is one of my favorite artists. I only wish I could’ve been in Boston at the time of this installation!
Via: In 2014, Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky was invited up to Dartmouth College by Stephon Alexander (The E.E. Just Professor of Natural Sciences at Dartmouth) and Dan Rockmore (Director of Dartmouth’s Neukom Institute of Computational Science), commissioned by The Neukom Institute to create a composition responding to the idea that conversations between Artists and Scientists could foster a comprehensive “album” where the A that stands for Art is added to the all too familiar acronym S.T.E.M. to S.T.E.A.M. The Hidden Code is an album that rests somewhere between a meditation on how artists and scientists convert ideas into action, and how composers translate the intangibility of music into a group of observations: The Hidden Code pushes Art into Science. Science into Music. Music into Art.
