DJ Spooky's CD Optometry has been proclaimed an instant classic by many critics, a vast sonic essay that merges DJ culture seamlessly with jazz, ambient, and other styles. As DJ Spooky wields laptop, turntables, treatments, bass, he is joined by pianist Matthew Shipp and violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain, among other guest musicians. Spooky calls Optometry "jazz for the genre splice generation," and as this edition of New Sounds illustrates, it's a big step forward in the DJ genre.
