Parallax of Quantum

“Almost certainly we are moving into an age of totalitarian dictatorships – an age in which freedom of thought will be at first a deadly sin and later on a meaningless abstraction. The autonomous individual is going to be stamped out of existence.” – George Orwell

In a special festival commission, Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky, has created a new composition “Parallax of Quantum” featuring strings, electronic music and the legendary science fiction writer, Samuel R. Delany, author of Babel-17 and Dhalgren, reading from George Orwell’s classic novel 1984.
