$5 First Friday: The Art & Science of Hip-Hop

February 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Music is simultaneously an art and a science, and the two disciplines are closely related. Science and music are formed on the foundations of curiosity, creativity, and mathematics and results of both serve to enlighten and inspire us. Join us as we explore the dynamics of hip-hop music and discover the artistic and scientific elements that contribute to the genre. Experiment with turntables and create your own beats. Play with rhythm, poetry, melody, and timing by mixing and composing your own music and learn how musical expression can yield positive change.

Join our partner, Microphone Mechanics, in our Megadome Theater for an interactive knowledge share and experience presenting Hip-Hop as a world culture with life affirming principles as well as an interactive hip hop performance.
