Smartphone maker Nokia is expanding into the music and documentary scene. For music and movie lovers, Nokia Music is releasing its documentary series New American Noise. Tonight the one-hour documentary special is airing on the Sundance Channel.
Nokia Music has collaborated with the Sundance Channel and Somesuch & Co (a London based commercial production company) to create the New American Noise documentary series. Nokia music, which is a free music streaming service, offers unlimited access to music and playlists of all types of genres on various Nokia Lumia Smartphones. Some playlists include music selected by artists themselves, while other playlists are selected by other Nokia Music users. You can create your own playlist as well. The music streaming service is provided to Nokia smartphone owners.
With music emerging from all areas of genres and cities, New American Noise captures the raw music scenes in several different cities across America. The one-hour documentary special features six short films created by four independent filmmakers. Abteen Bagheri, Emily Kai Bock, Bob Harlow and Tyron Lebron traveled across some of the most popular music scenes in America and explored the perspectives from the fans, the community and artists. Each director focused on certain areas of the U.S where music scenes are flourishing such as Los Angeles, New York, New Orleans, Portland, Detroit and Atlanta. The different cities tell a story about their music culture, music’s transformation and realness of it all.
Nokia Music and Sundance Channel have partnered up to show the documentary series. The films begin airing on the Sundance Channel on January 18. After the film has premiered on the network they will be available on Sundancechannel.com. For more information about Nokia Music and the documentary series checkout their website.
