Project Description


The Hypertext is a documentary podcast & live presentation that analyzes classic hip-hop recordings lyrically and instrumentally. That is, its objective is looking at every part and aspect of a record to see how and why it works as a musical system.

Hypertext does this by 1) reviewing a record’s original studio multitrack recordings, 2) conducting interviews with the composition’s original creators, as well as by 3) hosting conversations with diverse cultural experts and thoughtful commentators for their insights on that given record, or on matters related to it.
