Spotify Rap Cavier

Technical Director of Capture to CNC

My Role in this production was Technically Directing with some Creative to capture the musicians form through Photogrammetry and then sculpt in additional elements and any bad capture areas. I then worked with Neoset to handle the 3D model work pathing to make sure we get the best CNC model. Final steps were hand finished.

Spotify’s RapCaviar playlist is more than a curated selection of songs but an authority on the culture. Being featured on RapCaviar makes you a star; to be one of the most popular artists on the playlist makes you an icon. 

To celebrate RapCaviar’s top three artists of 2017, we immortalized these auteurs as life-sized sculptures in the same tradition as some of history’s most lionized heroes, leaders and deities. These monuments of SZA, Metro Boomin and 21 Savage pay homage to their musical contributions and elevate them to be revered amongst the greats. 

To bring these to life in the most upscale, impactful way, Spotify partnered with SpecialGuest and art and digital fabrication studio, Neoset Designs to bring the sculptures to life while working with Director X at m ss ng p eces to capture the creations on film. The approach strived to strike a balance that adhered to the classic art as well as modern technology.
