NASA : the spirit of Apollo( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

N.A.S.A., is an ongoing creative collaboration between two lifelong music aficionados, Squeak E. Clean and DJ Zegon, and their friends, friends of friends and musical heroes. While N.A.S.A. stands for North America/South America and contains a number of superstar artists from both coasts of the U.S., it is about as far from a tension-building geographical showdown as a record can get. Rather, The Spirit of Apollo was born with the righteous goal of bringing people together through music and art, and that is exactly what masterminds Sam Spiegel (Squeak E. Clean) and Ze Gonzales (DJ Zegon) have done. The N.A.S.A. project is especially noteworthy for its eclectic musical pairings: New Waver David Byrne together with rapper Chuck D (Money); M.I.A. and Santigold with Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Whachadoin?); and Kanye West and Lykke Li (Gifted). Ol Dirty Bastard makes a posthumous appearance along with other Wu-Tang Clan members RZA, Method Man and Ghostface Killah. John Frusciante (former guitarist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Tom Waits also appear.The documentary includes interviews with many of the artists who contributed to The Spirit of Apollo and behind-the-scenes footage from the studio sessions. Highlights include fun at Sizzlas compound in Jamaica, Method Man showing off his magic tricks and the altered consciousness of the George Clintons recording session. In addition, other N.A.S.A. friends have lent their visual talents and animated the music videos for several of The Spirit of Apollos tracks. They have been created by some of todays most highly-regarded street artists such as Shepard Fairey, Sage Vaughn, Barry McGee, Marcel Dzama and others
