rbma film live today


Shot during the 2013 edition of the Red Bull Music Academy in New York, RBMA‘s first foray into feature length film ‘Why am I doing this and What Difference Does it Make?‘ goes live on their website this afternoon. The film evokes the heady atmosphere of the RBMA event, in which fresh musical ideas tend to spark between artists representing different genres and generations.

The film features Lee Scratch Perry, Brian Eno, Philip Glass, Giorgio Moroder, Erykah Badu, Nile Rodgers, Rakim, Skream, Q-Tip, Bernie Worrell, Egyptian Lover, Ken Scott, Thundercat, Richie Hawtin, James Murphy, Debbie Harry and Stephen O Malley and many others. All of these artists have lectured or been studio tutors at the Red Bull Music Academy.
