Before The Music Dies

Created on Wednesday, 16 June 2010 14:17

With outstanding performances and revealing interviews 'Before the Music Dies' takes a critical look at the homogenization of popular music with commentary by some of the industry's biggest talents like Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, Elvis Costello, Erykah Badu, Branford Marsalis, Bonnie Raitt and more. Using historic footage the film looks at the evolution of American music and the artists who created it.

The film pulls back the curtain -in a very creative way- to expose the sad truth behind today's artificial music stars. "The reality is that superficiality is in," says Marsalis, and depth and quality is kind of out."

This documentary also explores the reason why so few companies currently control the music played on the radio and for sale at retail stores, and whether corporations really have the power to silence musical innovation.
