Friend of ibiblio Paul Miller (aka DJ Spooky) will be performing at the Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, NC on Friday, April 19th at 7pm.

You can buy tickets here.

From the event website:

Miller is a Washington DC-born electronic and experimental hip hop musician whose work is often called “illbient” or “trip hop”. He is a turntablist and producer. He borrowed his stage name from the character The Subliminal Kid in the novel Nova Express by William S. Burroughs. He is also a professor at the European Graduate School, Editor of ORIGINS Magazine and Artist in Residence at The MET.

Plan for an unforgettable large-scale multimedia performance piece including mixing and projected images and live chamber music that he composed, performed in collaboration with locally acclaimed string players.”

Should be a memorable evening!

We welcomed DJ Spooky to the UNC campus in 2008 for a presentation in which he merged art forms, media, education, and performance, to challenge our notions what art is, how emerging technologies are driving a new era where the lines between artforms and media are blurred, and how these changes affect free speech and freedom of expression. You can watch that presentation, along with a question and answer session below:
