Review: The multimedia artist struggled to find the balance between concert and lecture Saturday at his Goldstein Auditorium performance for the CRAVE Arts Festival.

Spooky, stick to your party playlist and keep the lectures for class.

Fingers were drumming and heads were bobbing, but the lengthy explanations from Paul Miller, known by most as DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid, left listeners fidgeting, wishing they had heard more of his art and a lot less talk.

There are no complaints about the music; in fact it is clear why the Metropolitan Museum of Art selected him for its Artist in Residence program. There is reason for his eccentric method in creating music, and he made that clear on Saturday at Goldstein Auditorium.

Syracuse Opera calls on College of Visual and Performing Arts students to create abstract video backdrops for 'The Flying Dutchman.'

Richard Wagner is considered a god among titans by opera aficionados.

His operas are grand opuses, largely inspired by northern European mythology and legend. Because Wagner operas call for such elaborate sets, staging one is an ambitious endeavor for any company — even one the size of the Metropolitan Opera. Syracuse Opera — the only year-round professional opera company serving upstate New York — has been a successful institution since its first season in 1974, but staging a Wagner opera remains a challenge.
