Paul D. Miller (a.k.a. DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid ), Leroy Jenkins, Pamela Z, & Hamza El Din (l to r), taken during the 6th Other Minds Music Festival in March of 2000. DJ Spooky is an experimental hip hop music producer and turntablist, who eclectic tastes have led him to collaborate with indie rock band Sonic Youth, avant-garde jazz musician Billy Martin and Matthew Shipp, and the contemporary classical ensemble Kronos Quartet, among others. Born in 1932, Jenkins is an American jazz violinist, violist, and composer, and one of the most important musicians to emerge from the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians), the legendary collective of which he was a member until his death in 2007. Most associated with the style of free jazz, Jenkins has performed with a number of famous jazz ensembles. Pamela Z is a San Francisco-based composer/performer and audio artist who works primarily with voice, live electronic processing, and sampling technology. She is well known both regionally and nationally for her unique performances in which she layers her operatic voice with digital sound processors and a MIDI controller, called the BodySynth®, that allows her to access electronic samples through gestural movement. The Egyptian born Hamza El Din was an oud player and pioneering world music composer whose works have influenced everyone from Steve Reich, Terry Riley and the Grateful Dead. Throughout his life he endeavored to combine elements of the traditional music of Nubia, Egypt, and later in his life Japan, within more formal structures.
