Miller is no stranger to ingenuity. In addition to his deck work as DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid, he's penned the book Rhythm Science, an academic look at sampling. He's compiled In Fine Style, a new two-disc set of classic Jamaican songs. And he's contributed think-pieces to Artforum and The Nation. "Our culture tends to separate art from music," he says. "Writing is the bridge." Unsurprisingly, the scholarly Miller refuses to be pigeonholed. "I don't want to be another knucklehead musician," he says. Spook and pals perform Subliminal Strings at 11:30 p.m. at the May Company building on Public Square.
