DJ Spooky’s Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica

DJ Spooky/Paul D. Miller’s next large scale multimedia performance work will be an acoustic portrait of a rapidly changing continent. Sinfonia Antarctica transforms Miller’s first person encounter with the harsh, dynamic landscape into multimedia portraits with music composed from the different geographies that make up the land mass. Miller’s field recordings from a portable studio, set up to capture the acoustic qualities of Antarctic ice forms, reflect a changing and even vanishing environment under duress. Coupled with historic, scientific, and geographical visual material, Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica is a seventy minute performance, creating a unique and powerful moment around man’s relationship with nature.

DJ Spooky relaunches 21C

Electronic musician DJ Spooky’s been talking about relaunching the (formerly?) Australian magazine 21C for a while now, but now they’ve got a web site up with new content. It sounds exciting.

21C is that magazine: A stunningly designed showcase for idea-driven writing about visionary thinkers, trendsetters and new, new things – the people, trends and ideas at the cultural cutting edge. 21C will be inspiring and innovative as early Wired; stylish and smart as the new New Yorker; edgy as Disinformation or Juxtapoz; ferociously funny as The Onion or Suck; and arresting as the original 21C or World Art, seducing the eye with bold visuals and design that is at once radical and readable. Overall, 21C will be attractive but tough, commercial but questioning, readable but intelligent, smart yet accessible.

Update: Here’s an Archive.org capture of the DJ Spooky era 21C. The site has been relaunched again, this time by Ashley Crawford, the editor of the original magazine. You can see it here.
