Last night while I was completely under the weather and dreaming of starships on Bankhead, Red Bull’s esteemed Music Academy debuted their What Difference Does It Make: A Film About Making Music documentary in 65 cities across the globe, including here in Houston at Warehouse Live. Bun B was on hand. Mannie Fresh was on hand. Matt “Pushermania” Sonzala moderated the discussion. Friend of the program Marco Torres was on hand for the majority of those festivies and you can read his report here.

The documentary itself, set in the sprawl of inspiration that is New York City highlights the music and work of such artists as Brian Eno, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Giorgio Moroder, Erykah Badu, Rakim, Nile Rodgers, Thundercat, Richie Hawtin and LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy among others.
