Paul Miller, aka DJ Spooky, uses the sounds of nature to create visual and acoustic records of climate change.

Syfy recently aired a series of advertisements with the tagline ‘let’s imagine greater,’ celebrating the type of people who inspire their programming content and viewers–the curious and creative individuals who see the world a little bit differently.

One of the ads features Paul Miller, aka DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid, recently seen on the PSFK 2012 NYC stage. Paul Miller is a composer, multimedia artist, and writer who reimagines everyday sounds from nature as music. He creates ‘acoustic portraits’ from these sounds and turns them into symphonies, challenging and inspiring his audiences to see the music as a ‘data record’ of climate change:

By collecting impressions of the landscape and distilling the material into visual, sonic and literary content, Miller has transformed DJ culture by taking creative collage to the next level.

See the DJ Spooky videos for Syfy below (plus more on the ‘Let’s Imagine Greater‘ website), where he explains how he found inspiration in Antarctica:
