DJ Spooky's "Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica" is a multimedia performance that features sound recordings and images of Antarctica. Paul D. Miller -- a.k.a. DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid -- created an acoustic portrait of a rapidly changing continent by traversing remote and often treacherous territories. His field recordings from a portable studio, set up to capture the acoustic qualities of Antarctic ice forms, reflect a changing and vanishing environment under duress. DJ Spooky presented "Terra Nova" at the 2008 Democratic National Convention; tonight he'll bring it to the Lied Center in conjunction with a four-day KU residency.
Tickets are $24 for adults and $12 for KU/Haskell students and children 0-18 years of age.
