DJ Spooky: Multimedia/Performance: Terra Nova: The Antarctic Suite

DJ Spooky’s Terra Nova – The Antarctica Suite will premier at the Sundance Film Festival on January 22nd 9pm.

The video linked here sketches an historical and geomorphological approach for his
visual project with a beautifully crafted tune sampling riffs from Steve Reich and Tangerine Dream's tripling apreggio's. This study will contribute towards tthe making of his eventual full-scale multimedia performance:

"Terra Nova: The Antarctic Suite."

Paul (DJ Spooky) Miller's field recordings from a portable studio, set up to capture the acoustic qualities of Antarctic ice forms, reflect a changing and even vanishing environment under duress. Coupled with visual material from Getty Images' vast collection. The Antarctic Suite is a live performance, creating a unique and powerful moment around man's relationship with nature.

The whole vibe is getting people to think about the planet itself as a record or a document that is always changing.
