The Note Episode 4 | Disco Demolition: Riot to Rebirth
The Note is a new documentary series from Red Bull Music Academy. Watch all episodes here:
At the height of the anti-disco movement in the late 1970s, Chicago rock radio host Steve Dahl devised one of the most infamous promotional events in pop culture history, and in doing so unwittingly set the stage for a dance music revolution.
The Note is a new series that uncovers and examines the vital creative crossroads and engrossing personal journeys that have and continue to shape our sonic landscape in profound ways. Our intial four episodes include documentaries about influential soundsystem designer Alex Rosner, Eddie Palmieri’s politically-charged Latin-funk masterpiece Harlem River Drive, the pioneering artist and engineer collaboration E.A.T. (Experiments in Art & Technology) and Chicago’s Disco Demolition Night.
The Red Bull Music Academy is a global music institution committed to fostering creativity in music. We celebrate music, its culture, and the transformative minds behind it. Begun in 1998, the Academy has taken the core principles that underlie its annual workshop for selected participants and applied this curatorial approach to events, lectures, and city-wide festivals throughout the year.
