PAST: DJ + MUSIC + VIDEO: "DJ Spooky: A Civil War Symphony" features Video Art, DJ Spooky Live and Live Violinist, Cellist and Vocalist Rochelle Rice at the National Gallery of Art East Building on SUN, Nov 24th at 2:00pm, Free

Sunday, November 24th
2:00pm, no end time noted, guessing 'til 3:30pm or 4:00pm

Paul D. Miller (a.k.a. DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid), composer, multimedia artist, writer, and DJ; accompanied by violinist Danielle Cho, cellist Jennifer Kim, and local vocalist, and the new co-host of "The Garden" BloomBars' Monday night open mic night, Rochelle Rice.

In this performance (see sneak peek from a previous performance with different musicians), Paul D. Miller (a.k.a. DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid) presents a composition for string ensemble with live-mixed electronic music and video. DJ Spooky: A Civil War Symphony, originally performed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, borrows images from the exhibition Tell It with Pride: The 54th Massachusetts Regiment and Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Shaw Memorial. On view through January 20, 2014, the exhibition considers the legacy of the 54th and the Battle of Fort Wagner in art, examining nineteenth-century efforts to memorialize those who fought, Saint-Gaudens’ Shaw Memorial itself, and the continuing inspiration that the regiment, its defining battle, and the Shaw Memorial have been for twentieth- and twenty-first-century artists.

East Building Concourse, Auditorium
4th & Constitution Ave, NW
Metro: Archives - Navy Memorial is closest on weekends, weekdays Judiciary Sq has an exit that is a bit closer. My advice since it's cold outside, go in to the West Building 7th St entrance and walk inside. The buildings connect underground through the food court.
