Here is the new episode of The Interview Series on the MULTI-MEDIA MEN podcast network, where the show is related to all things Movies, Music, and Entertainment! Here on this new episode, hosts Bryan Kluger from Boomstick Comics, High Def Digest, and Screen Rant, along with good friend Marc Ciafardini from GoSeeTalk join in on the fun. Our Feature Presentation this episode is a wonderful talk with composer/musician/DJ KATE SIMKO on her new project UNDERPLAYED!
About Kate Simko: Composer Kate Simko (We Believe in Dinosaurs, 20 Weeks) scored the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival and TIFF official selection documentary UNDERPLAYED – coming to the Amazon Music Mobile App and Amazon Prime Video on Monday, March 8th — International Women’s Day.
Electronic music was born from the ideals of diversity, community, and inclusivity; yet in 2019, women made up only 7% of Billboard’s Top 100 DJs and less than 3% of production and technical roles in the music industry. Simko’s electronic score for Underplayedwas influenced by her own experiences as an internationally touring female DJ, music producer, and musician. She related to the women DJs in the film, and drew from each of their music styles while also adding her own unique voice to emphasize their shared struggles.
Filmed over a summer EDM festival season, Underplayed presents a portrait of the current status of the gender, ethnic, and sexuality equality issues in dance music; following top DJ’s Rezz, Alison Wonderland, Tokimonsta, NERVO, Tygapaw, and more as they share their struggles and successes
The three of us talk about origin stories, where it all started with music and film, raves in Chicago, EDM, composing, and much more. It was a delightful, fun, engaging, and candid talk for sure.
