DJ Spooky & Matthew Shipp Trio

2009 NR

Turntablist and experimental hip-hop artist DJ Spooky joins noted pianist Matthew Shipp in this powerful film that blends the music of free jazz, the vibes of the urban soundscape and gritty shots of New York City. Backed by bassist William Parker and drummer Guillermo E. Brown, Spooky and Shipp explore the spaces in each other's musical style, fusing the two into a gentle exploration of the boundaries of rhythm, music and urban visual art.
