Mochilla Presents Timeless: Suite for Ma Dukes
Timeless: The Composer/Arranger Series is the name of a concert series that was created in homage to the composer/arrangers who have influenced hip-hop in the most literal and profound ways.
Artist: Miguel Atwood Ferguson
Genre: Hip Hop
Timeless was conceived in Los Angeles by production house Mochilla during February and March 2009 and included the performances of over 150 musicians in front of ecstatic sold out crowds. These three historic events were recorded and filmed in exacting detail with Mochilla’s unmistakable style.
Timeless because a heart-beat is always more important than a clock tick.
Composer/arrangers work with pencil and paper; there, among the tiny slashes and dots, sound exists in its most rudimentary form. Rhythm, harmony and melody begin this process as graphite strokes, that in the hands of virtuosos, become sweeping tornadoes of emotion. Today’s beatmakers also produce music on a grand scale: the graphite strokes have been replaced with artifacts, minutiae gleaned from the history of recorded sound, automated and then supplemented by hand strokes, head nods, thumps, glitches and artistry.
