This is the first movement of Stephen Webber's Stylus Symphony. It combines hip-hop music and turntables with the classical instruments of a symphony orchestra.
Stephen Webber scratches out the lead while other instrumentalists from the Berklee School of Music play violins, trombones, and other instruments usually associated with orchestra music.
The video features scenes in and around Boston, MA, including along the Charles River (from the Cambridge side).
