Making Music - Nesian Mystik

Short Film (Full Length) – 2005

This episode from a series for high school music students features Auckland hip-hop act Nesian Mystik who can speak from personal experience about music education after forming at Western Springs College and first making an impression in Rockquest's Pacifica Beats. They perform stripped down versions of their APRA Silver Scroll winner 'For the People', and 'Better than Change' (written by Dallas Tamaira of Fat Freddy's Drop) and emphasise how simple music making can be — they started out with just their voices and a Playstation One programme.

 

I sucked in school. The number of days I was away from school were higher than my school marks. The only subject I did good in was music because that was my passion.
– David Atai of Nesian Mystik
