Conceived as a reimagining of director D.W. Griffith’s infamously racist 1915 silent film The Birth of a Nation, Rebirth of a Nation, recorded with the Kronos Quartet, is a controversial and culturally significant project examining how “…exploitation and political corruption still haunt the world to this day, but in radically different forms.” + Originally commissioned in 2004 by the Lincoln Center Festival, Spoleto Festival USA, Weiner Festwochen and the Festival d’Automne a Paris, the project was Paul D. Miller’s first large-scale multimedia performance piece, and has been performed around the world, from the Sydney Festival to the Herod Atticus Amphitheater, more than fifty times. + Paul D. Miller is probably most well-known as DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid. + He has recorded a huge volume of music and collaborated with a wide variety of musicians and composers, Iannis Xenakis, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Kronos Quartet, Pierre Boulez, Steve Reich, Yoko Ono and Thurston Moore among them. + He also composed and recorded the score for the Cannes and Sundance Award-winning film Slam, starring acclaimed poet Saul Williams, and produced material on Yoko Ono’s recent album Yes, I’m a Witch.
