Sound Unbound

I was Assistant Editor to Paul D. Miller a.k.a. DJ Spooky on his essay collection, Sound Unbound: Sampling Digital Music and Culture (MIT Press, 2008). Contributors include Erik Davis, Manuel De Landa, Cory Doctorow, Chuck D, Brian Eno, Dick Hebdige, Vijay Iyer, Jaron Lanier, Jonathan Lethem, Moby, Steve Reich, Simon Reynolds, Scanner a.k.a. Robin Rimbaud, Bruce Sterling, Lucy Walker, and Saul Williams, among many others. David Byrne says Sound Unbound is “a nice antidote to the usual way music and the history of music is often categorized into high/low, pop/classical, or black/white,” Branford Marsalis says, “Sound Unbound is an excellent reference on art–in the popular context–in the twenty-first century”; and Laurie Anderson agrees, saying, “What a marvelous collection! … I love this book!”
