Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky, will visit Monmouth University to present his The Book of Ice—a multimedia performance and discussion he will stage with musicians from campus.

Drawing on the continent’s rich history of inspiring exploration and artistic endeavors, Miller has put together his own multidisciplinary study of Antarctica. The Book of Ice is one aspect of this ongoing project. In this talk, Miller discusses his journeys to Antarctica, climate change, and the creation of The Book of Ice, using Antarctica-related data to create maps, graphics, sound, music and multimedia performances.
