The Soapbox Derby

The Soapbox Derby is an ongoing audiovisual experiment by musician+filmmaker+artist Nicholas C. Valerio.
The project aims to synthesize and juxtapose the processes of media creation irrespective of medium.
It seeks to destroy the notion of medium.
TSBD exalts context and refutes convention.
It explores and challenges the limits of fair use and distribution.
“If you’re gonna funk,
then funk.”
Born out of cafeteria food and pop punk, The Soapbox Derby is an attempt to locate a uniquely American genre of music.
