The Metropolitan Museum of Art says…

Starting October 2012, the Met Museum introduces a yearlong performing-artist residency—The Met Reframed—with Paul D. Miller, a.k.a. DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid. DJ Spooky is a multimedia artist who works as a composer, writer, and DJ creating music and art across a huge expanse of styles. In 2007, DJ Spooky was commissioned by Art Center Nabi in Seoul, Korea, and the Korean American Film Festival in New York to re-score the classic 1956 film Madame Freedom. This evening's film screening will be accompanied by a live performance of the new score that evokes the jazz of the nightclubs of the 21st century, and uses electronic music composed to create more dynamic tensions in the story, and to foreground the visual rhythm of the film's editing techniques. This performance will be held in the Museum's Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium.
