DJ Spooky Laptop Orchestra
DJ Spooky works with U of Iowa music students in the Laptop Orchestra on the original electronic score EXPLORER I REMIX, commissioned by the University of Iowa and incorporating newly restored and digitized audio and visual data from the historic 1958 satellite mission by the late UI physicist James Van Allen that led to the discovery of the earth’s radiation belts. The musical score, which will premiere at the UI in spring 2017, will be accompanied by visuals created in collaboration with University of Iowa’s video team. EXPLORER I REMIX will be a moving collage at the intersection of art and science, seen through Miller’s unique perspective as a composer, DJ, and conceptual artist.
