DJ Spooky to Remix the 1915 Film Birth of a Nation, Presented by SMU Meadows’ Ignite Arts
“Trip-hop” musician DJ Spooky used his 21st-century DJ techniques to remix the classic 1915 film Birth of a Nation, upending every aspect of the controversial and racist film. The result is a new cinematic statement that propels the audience into a modern sociopolitical landscape that has evolved beyond all expectations. SMU Meadows’ SYZYGY new music ensemble performs the live original score, playing a blend of blues, jazz and gospel.
