Paul D. Miller - Rhythm Science

Conceptual artist also known as DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid, describes rhythm science as the creation of art from the flow of patterns in sound and culture, “the changing same.”
Tracing the genealogy of rhythm science, Miller cites sources and influences as varied as Ralph Waldo Emerson (“all minds quote”), Grandmaster Flash, W. E. B Dubois, James Joyce, and Eminem. “The story unfolds while the fragments coalesce,” he writes.
For the CD he collaborated with the fantastic label Sub Rosa from Brussels, using only material from their catalogue, ranging from Gertrude Stein, Marcel Duchamp and Gilles Deleuze to Charles Hayward, Morton Feldman and Merzbow. And his texts were designed for maximum visual and tactile seduction by the international studio COMA (Cornelia Blatter and Marcel Hermans).

This was published in 2004. A year in which Lawrence “Free Culture” Lessig wrote: “We’ve ended the century of broadcast culture—when manufacturers produced the culture we consume. In this brilliant and beautiful book, Paul Miller gives us the rhythm of sampled culture—culture created by those who can remix, and by technologies that enable anyone to remix. Rhythm Science is science; it is art; it is the story of how freedom would build better science and art. Dark, with bright flashes, in tempo, with syncopation, it is a companion to the next stage, if we’re allowed that next stage despite law that would keep us locked in the past.”

Paperback, 136 pages.
