Slaves to the Rhythm: Content Creation
Presenting Company: Slaves to the Rhythm
Presenters: Barry van Zyl, Josh Hawkes & DJ Strat3gy (Glenn van Loggerenberg)
Renowned drummer Barry van Zyl (Johnny Clegg’s long-time drummer) and bassist Josh Hawkes (Freshlyground, Streaks, Zap Dragons) present up close and personal workshops, illustrated by live performance – creativity and innovation through the lens of globally experienced South African musicians and ambassadors of Southern African culture. The entertainment industry’s focus is on ownership of content, at a scale never experienced before. Trend setters like Spotify, Netflix and Amazon are licensing and producing massive amounts of music and film for online distribution. Technology has turned anyone with an idea into a producer. Glenn, Josh and Barry will explore this new reality, and will co-create audio samples and video clips with the workshop attendees.
