Brian Eno, James Murphy, Skream and many others feature in new Red Bull Music Academy documentary


Since its inception in 1999, Red Bull Music Academy has proven instrumental in bringing together a wide array of artists from different disciplines for intensive sessions of collaboration, workshopping, and jamming across different cities of the world.

What Difference Does It Make? A Film About Making Music is a feature-length documentary from RBMA that will explore the nature of music-making through interviews with artists such as Brian Eno, Philip Glass, Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, James Murphy, the Egyptian Lover, Skream, Debbie Harry, Phillip Glass, Thundercat and, well, just about any musician who's good on this fine planet. A press release promises that the film has the lofty aim to "go beyond music, and ask questions about life itself."

Directed by Ralf Schmerberg, What Difference Does It Make? A Film About Making Music was shot at Red Bull Music Academy's 2013 edition in New York and was made to mark the 15th anniversary of the energy drink company's annual musical meeting of the minds. It will be premiered on February 17th 2014 and made available for free online at the RBMA website from the day after. You can watch a trailer for it above.

Red Bull Music Academy will release What Difference Does It Make? A Film About Making Music on February 18th 2014.
