Childish Gambino :: The Art of Score :: Matthew Garrison
MusicMakers News: Week of May 14th, 2018
When you are performing, people are attracted to you. When you play, you resonate in a way that people respond to. But why is that? Your story is part of what causes that resonance. It’s what got you here; what brought you to this place. It’s what inspires your music and helps you connect with your audience. It’s also the beginning of your Brand!
BBC describes Childish Gambino’s “This is America” as ”a powerful and poignant allegorical portrait of 21st Century America, which warrants a place among the canonical depictions of the USA from Grant Wood's American Gothic to Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, from Emanuel Leutze's Washington Crossing the Delaware to America the Beautiful by Norman Lewis.”
How’s this look for you? How are you interested in sharing about yourself in ways that inspire?
HHFF Master Cypher® - The Art Of The Score is a FREE public event held at Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn NY on June 22, 2018.
The one-day event includes a live scoring contest where participants will score a movie scene LIVE using only turntables (and/or a mic). Celebrity DJ's and the audience will vote for the winner.
The scoring contest is followed by a screening of the Hip Hop Film Festival’s 2017 "BEST OF THE FESTIVAL" winner “ See You Yesterday”, written & directed by Stefon Bristol, produced by Spike Lee.
