Acoustic / Improvisational / Participatory Rap Concert

From Ari Ebstein ’16:

No amps, no amps – just some double bass, box drum, cello, guitar, and audience rhythm (spoons, snaps, whatever we can think of) supplying the beat for some socially conscious bars and HOOKS. Come sing along!

The concert is part of a movement called the 1-0 movement which is a movement deemphasizing individualism and reemphasizing community – moving from 1s (individuals) to a 0 (circle / community), and inverting the semiotic concepts of 1 and 0 to do that. Ie; 0 = full, whole, and 1 = nothingness, finitude, etc. Themes of the bars will include: debt, pathos, gender, sustainability, consumerism, computers, love, and more.

In going with the ideological theme of the concert, the performance seeks to break down the hierarchical rapper / audience divide. There will be opportunities for audience input and an open mic section for whoever would like to get up and spit some bars. There will be a writing desk just outside the venue for people to write down some
lyrics if they so choose.
