Music in the Urban Landscape

New American Noise is a collection of short films that document emerging music scenes in six cities ( NYC, Detroit, Portland, New Orleans, LA and Atlanta)— from bounce beats for gay rappers in New Orleans to cross-pollinated genres at Detroit house parties to stripper-curated setlists in Atlanta. Each cultural and geographical setting gives rise to a unique sound. Through intricate networks of inspiration and distribution, the music finds its place within the landscape.

  1. super cool project! i’m fascinated by how the arts culture evolves. I actually just started a video blog on this topic and the creative process from my perspective as a musician. isn’t amazing that it’s possible for folk music to be mainstream in 2013!? thanks!
