Rhythm Science

The book by Paul D. Miller really worked as an inspiration for this class. I was very interested in the way the author seems to see the world as if it worked like everything was part of a giant computer.
Through his words, I could also see the context where this booked was developed. Early 2000’s was surrounded by a profound science and computing culture (Matrix, The 2000 effect) and the text breathes with all these concepts.
Reading from the point of view of a DJ also brings some interesting points on how we feel sound and vision.  I liked the historical perspective he brings to elements from our nowadays live like internet or music by comparing them with elements that come from a complete analogical era (mixtape, jazz…).
Actually, I found ironic to have this text as a reading because the author keeps referring to sound over and over. It was at the end of the reading that I realized how he had amplified the concept of sound to everything that surrounds us giving a new form to some old ideas.
