I recommend you check out this film calledEchotone, a documentary film by Nathan Christ (Reversal Films production) about the changing city we know as Austin, TX. Echotone refers to ‘a transitional zone between two communities’, here evidenced by Austin’s vibrant music scene and the influx of new condo developments.
Internationally known as ‘The Live Music Capital of the World,’ Austin’s music culture has led it to become one of the world’s most sought-after destinations. As nearly two dozen high-rises pop up throughout the city amidst economic downfall, how does the working musician get along? This lyrical documentary provides a telescopic view in the lives of Austin’s vibrant young musicians as they grapple with questions of artistic integrity, commercialism, experimentation, and the future of their beloved city. Echotone is a cultural portrait of the modern American city examined through the lyrics and lens of its creative class.
To promote the film, the production is currently engaged in aVan Tour right now. Look out for this film.
