Street Sound

Street Sound from Nadia Mahmassani on Vimeo.

"Does a street musician stand out from the chaos of the street or add to it? Do the unpredictable sights and noises around him compliment his music or obscure it? These are some of the questions that this ten-minute documentary about local musician Perry King attempts to raise. In addition to many other performances around the city, Perry plays nearly every Sunday afternoon in Columbia Heights. He graciously allowed me to film him throughout the spring semester, and my project quickly turned into an exploration of his relationship with his environment, the ever-bustling D.C. streets."
