 DJ Spooky - The Blue Series Continuum - Optometry - Review
DJ Spooky has been around for quite some time and has collaborated with so many people already that he seems like just about the most logical choice of electronic musicians to throw his hat in the ring on the Blue Series Continuum series on Thirsty Ear Records.
DJ Spooky adds upright bass, kalimba, and turntable action, and while the results may not break down conventions, it does provide a heaping helping of interesting music.
The result is also something that fans of DJ Spooky might not quite expect, because it's different than some of his other collaborations (including his work with the Freight Elevator Quartet on File Under Futurism) in that he isn't the one providing the majority of the percussive elements of tracks.

 Christian Marclay aka Paul Miller aka DJ Spooky (1955)

Now DJ Spooky has weighed in with Optometry, a sprawling cityscape of an album that absorbs both the ambient/abstract and the booty-shake, and fuses them with a staggering technique and ambition.

In Spooky's environment, the DJ is the master conductor; every element obeys his command; his fingerprints on every bleep.

But then, there's this tendency in the music press to judge DJ Spooky not for the music he makes, but for that music's effect on some large yet ephemeral scene, the whereabouts of which no one seems capable of putting their finger on.
Spooky opens the next segment with "Asphalt (Tome II)", a collaboration with Pauline Oliveros (how's that for cred?) and spoken word artist Carl Hancock Rux.
