April 29th: MOMENT Vinyl Release Party
Ya'll ready? This weekend, Audiopharmacy Prescriptions + Love/Speak Productions
presents, MOMENT, is the first solo project by Audiopharmacy Prescriptions' humble founder, producer, multi-instrumentalist + turntablist, Teao Sense. For those who don't know, Audiopharmacy is a live music ensemble that uses globally infused hip hop to inspire social change.
The album is about the journey of a human soul from birth, finding self, all the way to becoming aware of our interconnectedness and being inspired to selflessly contribute to our universal needs. MOMENT is also an homage to Teao's late grandmother, Grace Wong, and it intricately blends hip hop, house, and Latin genres, to tell a story.
After Teao created the music and storyline, he asked his favorite visual artists to choose a song/concept and create art inspired by this project. What resulted is a collection of art embodying the artists' personal expression and interpretations of these concepts. Teao fused artists' work, the music, self-shot videography, animation, art and other breathtaking imagery for the cinematic production. In collaboration, with Lumenscapes Illumination Media (specialists in live action full-dome film making), MOMENT's partakers to embark on a multi-sensory full dome audio/visual experience.
"MOMENT Audio-cinema is an infectious auditory journey that spins you around the world, through space and time. From the first 30 seconds to the last, you are infused with bumping beats, timely speeches, planetary sounds, political commentary, and the unique and smooth sound that Audiopharmacy has always brought throughout the years. Take a listen and you will surely become intoxicated." - Alixa, Climbing Poetree
"I would like the world to be a better place, but my intentions are not to force any ideas on anyone. I consider my art to be a contribution to a bigger conversation." - Teao Sense
