Rhythm Science by Paul Miller a.k.a. DJ Spooky

Rhythm Science by Paul Miller a.k.a. DJ SpookyDJ Spooky, who always deserves attention when he releases a new recording, is now an author. Using his real name, Paul D. Miller, he has written Rhythm Science, a book with his thoughts on art, music, sampling and remixing. In a recent interview with Katie Dean, Miller explains how the book came about: ?I felt that there hadn’t been a book by a DJ about the whole DJ process. It’s not just playing records … it’s about record players, crowds (and) social environments. So the book was a snapshot of that — a screensaver so to speak — of how you can have this kind of technologically conditioned social culture. And as a practicing artist I realized there hadn’t been that many books, in fact none, written by other DJs.? The book, naturally, comes with a full-length mix CD where Spooky samples Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, Patti Smith, and others.
