Paul D. Miller | DJ Spooky uses interviews from eight survivors of the tragedy of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to weave together a sound and visual portrait of one of the most powerful moments of the 20th Century.

Commissioned by UN Peace Boat in conjunction with the 70th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombing (1945), Miller interacted with 8 Hibakusha (bombing survivors) and took their tales, combining with historical footage, music, and the DJ app he invented (one of the most popular / 250 million downloads to date).

Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky is a composer, multimedia artist and writer whose work immerses audiences in a blend of genres, global culture, and environmental and social issues. His written work has been published by The Village Voice, The Source, and Artforum, among others, and he is the Editor of Origin Magazine. Miller's work has appeared in the Whitney Biennial; The Venice Biennial for Architecture; the Ludwig Museum in Cologne; Kunsthalle, Vienna; The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the Miami/Art Basel fair, and many other museums and galleries. Miller's award-winning book "Rhythm Science" was published by MIT Press 2004, and was followed by "Sound Unbound," an anthology about electronic music and digital media, in 2008. "The Book of Ice", an experiential visual and acoustic portrait of the Antarctic, was published in 2011 by Random House.

Miller has collaborated with a vast array of recording artists, ranging from Metallica to Chuck D; Steve Reich to Yoko Ono. His large scale, multimedia performance pieces include "Rebirth of a Nation," "Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica," which was commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music for the Next Wave Festival 2009, and "Seoul Counterpoint", written during his residency at Seoul Institute of the Arts in 2014. Miller was the first Artist in Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where he premiered his work "A Civil War Symphony" in 2013. In 2014, Miller was named a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, an honor recognizing visionaries at the forefront of global problem solving. Upcoming projects and recent releases include a new work for Dartmouth College, the CD/DVD of "Rebirth of a Nation" on Cantaloupe Music, a new dancehall/reggae remix release from VP Records, and the publication of his fourth book "The Imaginary App" from MIT Press.
