This is the story behind Damien Geter’s unique musical piece – an African American Requiem. The origin story video design is put together by Oh! Creative, ensuring that the video exudes a touching and emotional energy that isn’t overly dramatic.

The video portrays how an idea can reflect the personal experience of many people of color in the United States and how a cultural snowball effect unfolded to create this musical movement.

With pride, joy, worry, and wonder, the composer and his choir talk about the idea for the piece, including what inspired it and how it came to be. The video also discussed the musical inspirations and demonstrated what specific aspects of the composition symbolize.
