Cool Hunting Checks Out SOEUL COUNTERPOINT



Nara Shin of Cool Hunting dropped by a rehearsal of SEOUL COUNTERPOINT and spoke to Paul D. Miller (a/k/a DJ Spooky):
"Miller will be DJing from his eponymous app—a version of Musicsoft Arts' DJ Mixer—on three different iPads while sharing the stage with musicians (who are playing violin, Korean percussion, and the traditional 12-stringed gayageum) and La MaMa dancer Miriam Parker. They won't be alone, however—making use of CultureHub’s telepresence technology, they'll be doing a real-time collaborative performance with a chorus, as well as modern masked dancers, almost 7,000 miles away in Seoul."  
"The whole initiative of the project was to show there was more of a connection between different points of view," says Miller. "And what happens with electronic music and DJ culture is cosmopolitan. People move between scenes, they move between styles; and that's to be celebrated. Sampling has opened up a whole global dialogue with what it means to make an authentic statement, from whatever culture you're coming from."
