Paul Miller ’92, aka ‘DJ Spooky,’ Performs at the New York Academy of Sciences to Communicate Climate Change Archives

Writer, composer and multimedia artist Paul Miller ’92, better known as DJ Spooky, has some scary things to say about the state of climate change. Miller  created the Terra Nova project, an initiative to interpret data as sound and process climate change in multimedia performances through a method called data sonification.

Miller recently introduced his audience at the New York Academy of Science to “Sinfonia Antartica” – a presentation of classical, electronic and go-go musical interpretations of physicist Brian Greene’s research.

Miller uses material from The Book of Ice, his 2011 publication, in his act – showing charts, graphs and alarming images of the effects of human-caused climate change Miller noted on his 2008 expedition to Antarctica.
