Lisle Ellisâs Sucker Punch Requiem: An Homage to Jean-Michel Basquiat

Sucker Punch Requiem: An homage to Jean-Michel Basquiat, music composed by Lisle Ellis, is a delight and surprise. Translating the work of a young visual artist into a musical palette takes some doing, and Ellis does it with great imagination, integrity, and beauty; all those traits exuded by Basquiat as well. More than just fine notes, Ellis and the other musicians portray the passion of art, music, life and its vicissitudes thereof. Certainly Basquiat experienced many of those in his way-too-short life. The music radiates experience, anguish, joy: all the demands and rewards of quotidian life as it unfolds. Some stages/phrases are rough, some smooth; some improvised, some composed; some last awhile and some are fragmented into bits. All are inherent and necessary to creative existence.
And creative this is . . . Sucker Punch Requiem.
Take a listen.
