Method Sampling is the principle used by Ensemble Mik Nawooj, an Oakland, CA globetrotting orchestra which fuses hip-hop and classical music to magical effect. JooWan Kim, its Korean born composer, believes that any paradigm shifting change only happens by sampling and reframing differences and sparking innovation. To test his hypothesis, he meets a disabled choreographer who revolutionized modern dance, a self-taught Black mycologist who wrote the first books on Cordyceps cultivation, and a tiny house builder with a shipbuilding background who looks at houses as inverted boats. In addition, he meets the Italian Critical Theorist Fabio Vighi to explore how Method Sampling may allow society to overcome the challenges it faces today.

Q&A with the artists following the film!

Plus, see Ensemble Mik Nawooj LIVE with Hip-Hop Orchestra Experience, ft. Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra, on Friday, May 3rd!
