Graduate Fellowship String Quartet Performs with DJ Spooky


The UMKC Conservatory's Graduate Fellowship String Quartet will perform with Paul D. Miller (a.k.a. DJ Spooky) at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.  DJ Spooky premieres an original performance highlighting Romare Bearden's work through the prism of modern digital media techniques and DJ culture's "cut-and-paste" sonic palette.

Combining an electronic soundscape with live performance by the UMKC Conservatory Graduate Fellowship String Quartet, Miller connects Bearden's visual collages, the contemporary aesthetics of record collecting, what hip-hop calls "diggin' in the crates", and the Museum's exhibition of Bearden's prints.

The program is offered in connection with the exhibition Impressions & Improvisations: The Prints of Romare Bearden.

DJ Spooky's "An Acoustic Portrait" Friday, November 11, 7–8 p.m.

Atkins Auditorium. Members FREE, $8 non-member
