DJ Spooky's Rebirth of a Nation is a "destabilizing" remix of D.W. Griffith's original propagandist film, performed by Kronos Quartet. Spooky (aka Paul D. Miller) shares the evolution of the film's relevance and his unique take on how life imitates art.
This is an album about diversity without intellectual compromises. It is how it is because this is the way it is. There is no re-elaboration or, worse, reinterpretation of the existing aesthetic principles.
A number of premieres, a number of other artists, guests and collaborators and the NY performance debut of cellist Sunny Jungin Yang were all part of the free shows given by the Kronos Quartet as part of their 40th anniversary celebration at Lincoln Center.
