"I turned to the State Department for a quick second one summer while I was in college, but it was, like, 'This is ridiculous.' I switched to philosophy and French lit."
Once exposed to the Spooky atmosphere, people sense there's something different about him. Some plug in, some are vibed off. Obviously he's way too intelligent, but it's more than that. Check his titles: Necropolis, Songs of a Dead Dreamer. It's like he has crossed over, in some way.
"When I was a kid, we had a family picnic, and I walked next to the river and fell in. I was looking up through the water, and I could see my sister, and she was laughing - she thought I was trying to play a game. One of my hands could reach above the water, but my head and other parts of my body were caught. I felt the air leaving my lungs and started . . . just to float a little bit. And that sense of floating - I guess it's never really left me."
DJ Spooky and the Universal Robot Band perform, along with Mexico City hip-hoppers Plastilina Mosh and multimedia assailant Gardner Post of Emergency Broadcast Network, at the Hollywood Athletic Club on Halloween, Saturday, October 31.
