Paul D. Miller (a.k.a. DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid) wants to show audiences that music and art are always in dialogue. Working alongside Jeff L. Rosenheim, the curator of Photographs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the electronic and hip-hop artist presents a newly created piece for string ensemble with live-mixed electronic music and video using images from the current MoMA exhibition, Photography and the American Civil War. DJ Spooky has remixed music ranging from Wu-Tang Clan, Metallica and Bob Marley to classical legends Steve Reich and the Kronos Quartet. He has played at major festivals, like Bonnaroo, and his multimedia work has been featured at the Whitney Biennial, Venice Biennial and Miami/Art Basel. Now, the experimental composer masterfully mixes A Civil War Symphony for this event, which is just one of several from The Met Reframed, an unprecedented artistic partnership between DJ Spooky and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
