writing is DJing...

I really enjoyed Rhythm Science and thought this looked interesting (relevant for some of us, perhaps spring break pleasure reading for others...):

Paul Miller's (aka DJ Spooky) Sound Unbound: Sampling Digital Music and Culture

An edited collection. Mostly audio stuff, but applicable to other kinds of electronic media of course.

"Paul Miller is one of the best cultural radars in the world today. He always picks out the most relevant people working today and reveals previously unseen connections. If you want situational awareness about the world of sound, music, performance, computers, and ideas, read this book." —Lev Manovich
