This is not quiet entertainment. Bombarded by visions scattered across three screens and a pulsating live audio mix, spin master and philosopher Paul D. Miller a.k.a. DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid turns The Birth of a Nation, D.W. Griffith?s controversial 1915 film, on its head in a multimedia spectacle that, in his own words, examines ?how America?s myths migrate through the culture?s operating systems.? Acknowledging the racism underlying the landmark film, DJ Spooky nonetheless credits Griffith for creating cinematic ?jump-cuts,? a technology that, connecting fragments in provocative ways, influenced and now characterizes the modern experience. The latest digital technology is used to expose and perhaps ultimately explode life as we know it. This is Paul D. Miller a.k.a. DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid at his creative best.
