The Church in Sag Harbor is parading its interdisciplinary chops this weekend, with programs featuring Paul Miller a.k.a. DJ Spooky, a multimedia artist; Bruce Wolosoff, a composer and pianist, and Dan Rizzie, a painter, printmaker, and collage artist.

Mr. Miller, whose work engages audiences in a blend of genres, global culture, and environmental and social issues, will be at The Church on Friday at 5 p.m. to present "Parallax of Quantum," an exploration of the impact of George Orwell's "1984."

Commissioned by the Deep Water Literary Festival in Narrowsburg, N.Y. in tandem with the Orwell Foundation, "Parallax of Quantum" examines how we organize our thoughts and emotions while navigating through the deluge of information flooding the digital world. The work invites audiences to a digitally narrated piece against a backdrop of Mr. Miller's music composition, artwork, and graphics.

Tickets are $18, $10 for members.

The Reflections in Music series will return to The Church on Saturday at 6  p.m. with Mr. Wolosoff, its artistic director, and an ensemble of musicians who will present "Love Stories," a chamber music concert of duos and trios, all of which have something to do with love.

Mr. Wolosoff, who lives on Shelter Island, will be joined by Clarice Jensen, a cellist; Luna Seongeun, a soprano, and Max Tan, a violinist, for a program of classics by Faure, Rachmaninoff, Piazzolla, Clara Schumann, and the revised version of Mr. Wolosoff's piano trio "The Loom," which was inspired by watercolors by Eric Fischl, his friend and The Church's co-founder.

Tickets are $25.

Dan Rizzie of North Haven, whose work is in The Church's "Master Impressions" show, will talk about the collaborative process between artist, printer, and the press at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, the final day of the exhibition. Some of his prints and artist books will be on view, giving visitors an in-depth understanding of his practice.

Mr. Rizzie's concern for materials, color, form, and the walls and structure of urban environments have led him, according to The Church, to arrive at a set of symbols that document his feelings while remaining within formal established conventions. 

Tickets are $10, free for members of The Church, who must reserve on its website to be guaranteed seating.
