DJ Spooky Headlines U of M Arts Quarter Fest on May 9
Minneapolis - St. Paul (April 15, 2015)--Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky will headline “A Night in the Quarter,” an end-of-the-school-year celebration in the University of Minnesota’s West Bank Arts Quarter on Saturday, May 9.
This special event, presented by the University’s Department of Art, School of Music, and Department of Theatre Arts & Dance, will feature live music ensembles, exhibitions by art and theater design students, and a special performance of “Arctic Rhythms” by Miller.
Originally commissioned by National Geographic, and inspired by a Sierra Club Aichilik rafting journey, “Arctic Rhythms” is the latest piece composed in Of Water and Ice, Miller's suite of music for the Arctic and Antarctica. “Arctic Rhythms” illuminates the environmental issues faced by the arctic circle through an evocative multimedia trip to the Arctic landscape, juxtaposing images with live and recorded hip-hop, electronic, and minimalist music to create an unforgettable experience. http://www.djspooky.com/antarctica/
