The Art of Music is a groundbreaking showcase series presenting criminally overlooked specialty music for film, TV, video game and other media. It attracts over 150 music supervisors, film composers, film directors, game designers and other media professionals for a unique chance to explore niche music style, discover upcoming projects and stay ahead of the curve.
June 24’s This Ain’t No Disco! showcase presents game-changing music, artists and events that made 1977-1979 one of the most
eclectic and influential moments in popular music history, including:
- Punk’s tumultuous rise and fall driven by the Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Clash, Jonathan Richman, the Damned
- A Disco craze culminates with all-time best seller Saturday Night Fever… followed in 1979 by a violent anti-disco backlash
- Post-punk and new wave: Gary Numan, Blondie, Devo, Talking Heads, The Cars
- Metal and hard rock: AC/DC, Van Halen, Motörhead, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy
- Genre-benders like The B-52’s, Elvis Costello and The Police
- The Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight” becomes the first top 40 hip-hop track as the “MC” culture in New York emerges
- Pop radio churns out hits by the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel, Elton John, Peter Frampton and James Taylor
Attendees can expect surprise guests, unique presentations, and limited-edition art inspired by, and created, just for the night.
Plus, raffle prizes valued at $250, boutique wine and hors d’oeuvres, and a “recreation” of a late-70s independent record store --
one of the primary forces in breaking new bands in that era. Free RapidShare music download with hand-selected clearance-ready
tracks and a This Ain’t No Disco! licensing directory of late 70’s music and artists also included.
This event is a MUST for anyone with an interest in adventurous scoring and placement for film, TV, video games, web content
