AFRONAUT IS A CONCEPTUAL MULTI-MEDIA PROJECT DEVELOPED BY MYSELF, MH THE VERB AND MY TEAM OF ARTISTS, MUSICIANS, AND CREATORS KNOWN AS, ARTHOUSE95. 

OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS, WE'VE CREATED VARIOUS FORMS OF ART & MEDIA (INCLUDING NEW MUSIC, VIDEOS, EVENTS, AND VISUALS) THAT PROMOTE OUR IDEALS OF CREATING CHANGE THROUGH EMPOWERMENT, DIVERSITY, AND COMMUNITY BUILDING. 

THE NEW MUSIC FEATURES TIMELY, IMPASSIONED LYRICS OVER FUNKY GROOVES, ENTRANCING BEATS, AND OUT OF THIS WORLD SOUNDS PRIMARILY PRODUCED BY PITTSBURGH-BASED BEATSMITH, BUSCRATES 16-BIT ENSEMBLE.  

 

THIS NEW ALBUM IS JUST THE BEGINNING...

WHY THE AFRONAUT?

THE CONCEPT IS BASED ON A DEVELOPING STORYLINE/NARRATIVE ABOUT A FUTURISTIC (S)HERO WHO TRAVELS BACK TO THIS COMPLICATED MOMENT IN TIME TO INSPIRE AND EMPOWER CHANGE.  BUILDING ON THE AFRO-FUTURISTIC VIBES, WE CREATED A SYMBOL OF POWER AND PROGRESS AS A THEME FOR OUR ARTISTIC AND SOCIAL MOVEMENT.

MY DEFINITION OF AFRO-FUTURISM

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A BIT OF A NERD WHEN IT COMES TO SCI-FI AND MOVIES, ESPECIALLY SUPERHERO ACTION FILMS AND COMIC BOOKS. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN ATTRACTED TO THE IDEA OF THE "ANTI-HERO". IT RESONATES WITH ME BECAUSE IT'S HOW I SEE MYSELF IN A LOT OF WAYS AS A BLACK MAN LIVING IN A AMERICA.  THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS I FEEL LIKE AN OUTCAST IN SOCIETY AND AT ODDS WITH THE MASSES, HOWEVER STRUGGLE IS PART OF MY DNA.  THE RESILIENCE OF BLACK PEOPLE IS LIKE A SUPER POWER. ALL OF THESE LEADERS BEFORE ME HAVE BEEN LIKE HEROES FIGHTING FOR A CAUSE, BUT NOW IT'S OUR TURN TO EMBODY THE DREAMS OF OUR ANCESTORS AND BECOME HEROES FOR A NEW GENERATION.
