This is the third movement of Stephen Webber's Stylus Symphony. It combines hip-hop music and turntables with the classical instruments of a symphony orchestra.
Raydar Ellis raps and Stephen Webber scratches while other instrumentalists from the Berklee School of Music play violins, trombones, and other instruments usually associated with orchestra music.
The video features Raydar rapping in various places around Lowell and Boston, MA, as well as light painting photographs from all over.
