“Music is a powerful tool for personal reflection and spiritual renewal. The Industrial Culture has used it primarily for decoration and thus ignored its true potential as a healing power for the human psyche. The essence of music is vibration whose source is light. Out of that vibration comes human speech formed as language. Music is a way of communicating beyond the constraints of diction and can therefore help us to connect at deeper levels of understanding with ourselves and the world around us." In May of 2006, Schein teamed up with Emmy Award Winning Filmmaker Josh Lowell of Big Up Productions to produce the video for “RiseUp” off Schein’s album “Speed of Light”. The video features emcee Deirdre Breeden (Charlottesville, VA) and members of Breaks Kru (Kings of NYC 2006) and Evolution out of Brooklyn, NY. Known around the globe as the leading creator of high quality climbing and bouldering films, Josh Lowell’s films “Pilgrimage”, “Dosage III”, and “Dosage IV” have all featured songs by Alex Schein. In December of 2007, Schein’s song “the Drop” was featured in Lowell’s Emmy Award winning segment of Chris Sharma’s ascent of The Arch at Es Pontas as seen on NBC’s Jeep World of Adventure Sports. As a member of Hip-Hop Congress, Schein has performed with such artists as Amir Sulaiman (HBO’s Def Poetry), Proof of D-12 (RIP), Brother Ali, Zion I, Percee P, Ursula Rucker, Quese IMC and Culture Shock Camp, Planet Asia and the Bedouin. In July of 2007, Schein was invited to perform at the “Takin’ it to the Streets Celebration” featuring Lupe Fiasco, Ali Shaheed Muhammad (Tribe Called Quest), and Rocksteady Crew. Later that year, Schein performed at the “We Are Change 9-11 Benefit for First Responders” featuring Immortal Technique and M-1 from Dead Prez.
