What Difference Does It Make: A Film About Making Music – is a free documentary film that delves into the challenges and triumphs of living “a life in music.”
The documentary traces the stages of development that musicians experience, and goes beyond the topic of music to explore questions ‘about life itself.’
The film features interviews with dozens of seasoned music professionals including Brian Eno, Giorgio Moroder, Nile Rodgers, Skream, Richie Hawtin, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and James Murphy, among others.
The movie is available as a free stream (above).
The movie was shot at the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy in New York by director Ralf Schmerberg, and was produced by his Berlin-based artist collective Mindpirates.
