Sound and Vision

Hosted by Billie JD Porter, Sound and Vision is a 4 x 30 min music documentary series for Channel 4.  The Guardian’s TV pick of the week, it tells the stories of contemporary music artists and shows how their work is having an influence in a wider social context.

In Episode 1, HIV positive rapper Mykki Blanco shines a spotlight on the black LGTBQI movement contending with representation in Trump’s America.

Episode 2 looks at how female grime artists are getting a foothold in genre traditionally associated with masculinity and patriarchal bragging.

Episode 3 explores the world of the virtual popstar and meets Hatsune Miku, the 6 foot 16 year-old female singer that doesn’t exist and who performs in concert to thousands of adoring fans.

The final episode celebrates the new wave of UK Afrobeats and introduces the artists who are creating a renewed pride in African heritage and changing British perceptions of Africa.
