SOUNDTRACK 63
"Soundtrack 63" is an interactive documentary with live music and a multimedia video installation that focuses on the critical events of the civil rights movement, specifically those occurring in 1963.
In February 2013, 651ARTS, a premier performing arts organization in Brooklyn, launched a series of original artistic programming called "Movement 63." The purpose of this series was to commemorate the 50th anniversary of significant events that marked a turning point in the struggle for civil and human rights in the United States. Conceptualized by Creative Director Chen Lo and scored by Tut Asante' Amin "Soundtrack 63: An Interactive Documentary" was a major part of this series. It is an elaborate multimedia presentation of these events including an extensive video and graphics installation and dynamic musical performances of period pieces by an 18-piece orchestra. Soundtrack 63 opened on February 8th and 9th to sold out audiences and featured performances and appearances by Abiodun Oyewole of The Last Poets, Blitz the Ambassador, Dr. Cornel West and Sonia Sanchez.
BRIDGING THE BLOOD
In August 2010 The Central Blood Bank and the August Wilson Center for African American Culture partnered to address the lack of blood donation in the African American community, especially among those 17 ‐ 35 years of age. The two organizations contracted Liberation Music, LLC and Ya Momz House, LLC to create 'Bridging the Blood,' a multimedia campaign that included a youth‐produced public service announcement, a mixed media visual art exhibition, a mini‐documentary premiere and a special performance by Fantasia.
