RAPWORX is the result of Escare, YoofArt Attack, the Dept. of Community Development and the Office of Children and Youth, working together to develop an Esperance project for National Youth Week 2004.
Rap is an element of Hip Hop, the vocal expression of lyrics in sync to a beat or rhythm beneath it, usually provided by a DJ or rhythm track. DJ Fallout (Damien Kietal) ran the workshops, teaching the participants necessary skills required for performing 'Rap'. These included:
- Learning to compose lyrics
- Learning to rhyming along with rhythms
- Working in a recording studio
- And producing the Rapworx CD
RapWorx Esperance 2004 CD
One of the goals of the workshop was to produce a CD which is entitled 'RAPWORX - Esperance 2004'. This contains all the creative talent, learnt skills and hard work put into the project by all of the young people involved.
