Night School // ~5 min. Lesson // DJ Spooky // Book of Ice

On September 25, the second season of Night School kicked off as Michael Hebb brought the accomplished composer, multimedia artist and writer Paul D. Miller AKA DJ Spooky to the Sorrento Hotel for a gathering of music and discussion around his latest work, The Book of Ice. Thanks to a unique partnership with the Master's of Communication in Digital Media (MCDM) program at the University of Washington, a video series giving viewers an inside look into Hebb's events will be created throughout the year.

What emerges is an intimate look into DJ Spooky's recent travels to Antartica and his thoughts on climate change, symphonic hip-hop and the future of humanity itself. Mix all of that in with a string quartet playing Spooky's newest compositions that are all inspired by the sounds of ice and you get the essence of what can only happen at Night School. Check it out.
