Music On The Road
Documentary, 10 x 7 minutes, 2016 Directors: Yoann Le Gruiec and Benoit Pergent
Music On The Road is a transmedia platform that allows you to discover and share emerging music, available for the web, TV, radio and smartphones. The user can create his own interactive journey on a musical map, and make connections with musicians and other members by joigning the MOTR Community. We want to rediscover music, by focusing on the fusion of genres: we are portraying the new sounds of American music, by meeting the artists that are recreating the blues, the jazz, the folk, the hip hop and the techno scenes by pushing the frontiers further, i.e. by enhancing the land’s musical DNA. On the way to the 9 different locations between NYC and San Francisco, the user is driving with the radio tuned in to MOTR.FM, and can choose to have for each destination 3 different audio podcasts. They are unique presentations of the cities we are visiting, held by renown musical personalities, to give the audience the musical background of each location involved.
