Just wondering if anyone on here had heard about this project. I'm about halfway into the download but it sounds interesting. Website's here and a direct link to the MP3 here.

  • I will see this on the strength but I have no illusions: this will likely suck.

    d/l'ing now...

    seems possible it could suffer from "Work Backwards From GREAT Abbreviation/Play-on-words Syndrome." Hope not. The site was nice with mouseover piano doodles and perfect narration.

    WTF is this? I'm suspect of anything that purports to be a 'new form of music, theatre, film, art' et cetera. And how is BIg in this? Has it been sitting on a shelf somewhere?

    I will buy this AKA I'm a customer.

    seven minutes into it = perfect jay z song, from the snippet.

    I'm a sucker for the hip hop album, even when it's as obvious and forced as "HIP HOP OPERA." Rae Ghost Nas Jay Whoever else of COURSE I'll buy this...I pretend to like the Prince Paul one, for chrissakes...

    51 minutes: Jay sounds like he's trying to catch up to the Long Good Friday beat...

    This looks hilarious.

  • I'm listening but I still don't know what this is supposed to be.

    um:
    IT IS SHOWEING THAT HIP HOP RAP IS NOT A FAD AND ALSO IT SHOULD BE EXCEPTED INTO THE MAIN STREAM AS A LEGITIMATE ARTFORM AND AFRICAN DRUMS ARE AS COMPLEX AS EUROPEAN MELODIES YOU RACEST

    I probably shouldn't have posted this before I listened to it. I'm still confused as hell as to what this is. I thought there was a movie and the mp3 was a soundtrack or something but apparently the mp3 is the project? I think it's kind of like a book on tape but instead of words dude just uses songs and Joe Bataan interludes to tell the story.

    Don't apologize.
    Threads like this are the grease that makes the Soulstrut machine work!

  • It's part of a larger art installation so I don't think anyone component is going to work on its own. I've only seen the trailer so I can't comment on the longer stuff that's now available.

    I'd have to take this in at the gallery amd not online.

  • PABLOPABLO 1,921 Posts
    Just went through it quick.
    It's basically what Organized Konfusion did on The Equinox LP mixed with some Black Album remix type shit plus movie dialogue.
    Bataan narrates.

    Eh.

    That was a lot of wasted time to just say: "this sucks."

    I was going to post some nose-biting snarkery about this being a filmic embodiment of sampling, but I'm too old for that.

    i'm pretty sure it was the entire Fugees, plus Bounty Killer...weird chorus "michael jackson brought you thriller..."

    lol

    don't forget BEYONCE in a SPECIAL EVENT: MTV's CARMEN- A HIP HOPERA

    ^ Sync of the month. 2:18 = moment.

    Hijack question: Is it wrong to like this song? Because I'm still in that sailboat.

    The guy with the cartoon fandom is telling me I'm wasting my time?

    Was that supposed to be some kind of comeback? An avatar diss?
