SHAOLIN JAZZ – Video – Brew Out
This experience producing SHAOLIN JAZZ has allowed me to meet a number of innovators, of various disciplines, and one such person is Tewodross Melchishua – the cat who produced the video above for the SHAOLIN JAZZ track “Brew Out.”
In addition to Tewodross’ video production talents he’s also an educator that teaches an in-demand hip-hop course at Bowie State called Art 408 Visual Culture, what he calls “a visual study of hip-hop and B-Boy culture, urban/contemporary art.” And if that wasn’t enough Tewodross also curates a hip-hop exhibition called M3: MCs, Mics and Metaphors.
I’d actually seen Tewodross’ video work at different events, not knowing who he was, but 2-Tone gave me the proper intro as he thought his Live Video Mixing or as Tewodross calls it “Visual Music” would be a perfect addition to our listening parties in addition to him also creating his brand of videos for tracks from SHAOLIN JAZZ.
Tewodross’ “Visual Music,” (a unique blend of vintage pictures, video, verbiage, sounds, and colors) complemented our PHILA Listening Party like he’d been with the team since day one, so lookout for him at our listening parties and we’ll also be releasing a new SHAOLIN JAZZ video of his every month.
