You are walking down the street in Berkeley, CA. People are passing by; the down-and-out ask for change. Traffic surges, gleaming tons of steel stopping, going, turning... Suddenly, you hear a wholly improbable sound, an acoustic multi-timbral, live, real-time orchestration, not like anything you have ever heard before from a pair of hands. You follow the sound and stumble upon a hypnotized crowd. At the center is a man who shapes the present by changing 2,500 years of musical history. With his signature "bowhammer" cymbalom technique, Michael Masley has performed for thousands of passers-by for the last 25 years, gathering followers and recognition around the world.
Art Officially Favored follows Masley from his humble beginnings in Michigan to the present day, where an unique story unfolds by the hands of artist like Steven Tyler, Jack Douglas, Michael Manring, and many more. Martín Yernazian tells the story of a man who challenges his own definition - culturally, socially and politically.
