Ever wonder who the best rapper ever is? Who used the phrase 'On Fleek' first? Who rap's favorite basketball player is? Which sneaker is more hip-hop: Adidas or Nike?
The Rap Research Lab is a studio for teens to explore art, data visualization graphic design and the stats behind Beats, Rhymes & Life in a creative environment.
No previous art or technology experience needed!

About the Artists
Create your own instruments and sounds with basic electronics. Then perform live! The ten members of Theremidi Orchestra (TO) will guide and assist participants during a five-day, hands-on and theoretical workshop. Participants will assemble two electronic sound devices and learn how to play them in noisy group improvisations.
The workshop will also provide a framework for aesthetic discussion, from how to improvise and work in a group and understanding the sound ranges of the instruments, to implications of collective feedback loops and concepts of social amplification. Then work collaboratively to develop the live performance. Daniel Neumann, curator of CT-SWaM, will assist in developing ideas for spatialization of the multi-channel performance.
