LOS ANGELES— The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles
(MOCA) has announced the launch of Errata Erratum by New York artist and
musician Paul D. Miller on moca.org. The work is commissioned by MOCA and is part of an ongoing series of artists’ projects.

Based on the work of artist Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968), Errata
Erratum features audio remixes of Duchamp’s Errata Musicale and his
lecture “The Creative Act,” which was given at Rice University in Houston in
1957, combined with visual animations of Duchamp’s rotoreliefs and
disc-shaped graffiti tags by Miller himself.

Part homage, part critique, Errata Erratum examines ideas of
circularity, rotation, repetition, looping, and strategic selection by allowing the
viewer to create an original “remix” by manipulating the
both audio and visual elements through a control panel. Inspired by Duchamp’s
concept of “musical sculpture,” Miller integrates the concept of mixing
sound as a form of sculpture, based on contemporary art forms such as hip-hop and
dub reggae.

Paul D. Miller is a New York-based conceptual artist, writer, and
musician whose artworks have appeared in the Whitney Biennial, The Venice
Biennial for Architecture, and the Ludwig Museum in Cologne. He is perhaps best
known as Dj Spooky that Subliminal Kid, a constructed persona who uses a
variety of digitally created music as a form of postmodern sculpture. He
has recorded a significant volume of music and collaborated with a
variety of pre-eminent musicians and composers, including Ryuichi Sakamoto, Kool
Keith (a.k.a. Doctor Octagon), Yoko Ono, and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth.

The project can be seen on www.moca.o rg/museum/digital_gallery.php

This project has been made possible by the generous support of The James Irvine Foundation.
