acoustic portraits:
feauturing paul d. miller, aka, DJ spooky

In this episode, artist and DJ Paul Miller reminisces on his deep influences with science fiction narrative,
data collection and technocratic society, and how he sees remix as a subversive form of retelling history from
alternative vantage points. He discusses with Mark Amerika how the language of remix and the circulation of ideas
in networked systems can be used to trace acoustic portraits of the world around us.
