ART A Reasonable Truth Premiers “SoCal Waves” as New Single With Upcoming Music Video

It’s about that time! Summer is in the air and the ‘Centerpiece’ has released another anthem, this time, showcasing beach and west coast vibes by the ocean that will take you away on a vacation. “SoCal Waves” originally premiered in February 2016 with the My Vacation In LA season 1 finale in a demo form.

ART A Reasonable Truth produced an album with Grammy board and multi-million dollar studio-taught mix and master Wendy Levin of D.M. Gremlin Studios with an instrumental by Billy Burton; the collaboration and oceanic sounds are dreamy and chillular.

Listen to “SoCal Waves”

After releasing 3 singles prior including “Centerpiece”, “Get Down With It!” and “Ready”, “SoCal Waves” is planned to be the first music video of a visual album, but unlike artists like Beyoncè and Todrick Hall who release it all at once, the “Trippy Tran Man” plans to release the videos out of order and at different times before all the pieces of the ‘Centerpiece’ concept is complete. Trippy.

Filmmaker Anthony “Rory” Tran on ‘Let’s Make A Deal’ Game Show the Day After Wayne Brady Wins Emmy

Director/Producer Anthony T. Tran

Welcome to the first day of May! Today, we have a mini-interview with Anthony “Rory” Tran, director/producer/writer of Trippy Tran Films, LLC. who also just released a debut pop/hip-hop/electro album under the name ART A Reasonable Truth.

Trippy T just made his TV network game show debut on Let’s Make A Deal hosted by Wayne Brady on CBS yesterday on 4/30/18 being the first episode to air after Mr. Brady took home an Emmy for best Game Show host. Talk about epic timing!

Watch the episode here: https://www.cbs.com/shows/lets_make_a_deal/video/f_YwUZ74_UBF26PWmF2YwZR4CVqrCLhJ/let-s-make-a-deal-4-30-2018/

Costume: Gladiator. Anthony Tran and Wayne Brady on CBS.

What was it like being called to play?

It was a rush! Knowing that once you’re called, you have to make your entrance down those stairs, grab the good luck from the people waving at you and then talk to someone you’ve grown up watching and laughing to (Wayne Brady; Whose Line Is It Anyway?), it was completely surreal. I still can’t believe it happened and I’ve seen it on the boob tube with my own eyes!

You recently had surgery?

Yes, I had Lasik eye surgery done just a few weeks prior. My right eye, which still is bothering me with only 10 feet of clarity in it, felt bruised and I was hoping after that I could still make the taping when I had audience tickets.

Have you seen this game ‘CA$H COUNTRY’ be played before?

Nope! And that’s even after all the episodes I have watched… so I don’t know if it was new, but it sure was new to me. When I was up there, my senses were all over the place because you want to show respect and kindness and also make quick decisions as people are shouting and telling you to do things. It’s nuts! In the end you have to go with your gut instinct.

I picked Tiffany because her face was on California where I have been for 4 years now and her name is also the same name as the main character of our short film Duality which later became Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown. So Tiffany it was for me, though now looking back, I maybe should have showed Ohio and Cat some love. It’s still awesome that I traveled across the country and it’s officially represented here on national television.

What was it like to see the prize you missed?

It was a really great prize and though I’ve been on a yacht every year for New Year’s these past 2 years, those sunglasses looked amazing and it sounded like a fun time. I just knew after paying for Lasik payments and producing my album and upcoming film works, that taking the money was the way to go, no matter how small. And it was a cool amount. I’m so fortunate to have been able to play with the #LMAD team! Wayne, Jonathan, Tiffany, Cat, Chris – everyone was so amazing.

Wayne Brady just won an Emmy for “Let’s Make A Deal” and the day after, your episode airs. Everyone is watching in the industry. How do you feel?

Funny thing is, I was driving to visit my friend Joe in Apple Valley (in the high desert) and a truck passed me with a map of the United States on it around the time the Emmys were airing. I felt a sense of something and forgot about it being scheduled to air the next day on the 30th of April since it was actually shot last September.

It feels legendary to be the last new contestant the day after everyone is talking about it and watching it. I hope someone out there is willing to take a chance with our team and help us achieve the goals we want with our films, music, media and art. Otherwise, we will continue to make our mark with Trippy Tran Films.

Okay guys, what did you think of the episode? Comment below and be sure to connect with us for updates to see when Wayne Brady will be in our next big movie like he said on national television. 🏆

“QK-Hilltop” is the 9th Original Trippy Tran Films Short Movie…And It’s A MindF*ck

Recently releasing his debut album under the artist name ART A Reasonable Truth, the “Rory Man” aka Trippy T has since been featured in Todrick Hall’s visual album “Forbidden” appearing in both “Forever” as a dancer and club kid in a dystopian future as well as a more featured role on the album track “Forbidden” video starring Jade Novah and Keala Settle (The Greatest Showman).

Watch “Forbidden” starting at 1hr4min and see Trippy T dance by the stage on the right side and stay tuned for this video after!

Also, we entered #PayMeChallenge for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 front runner queen Shangela. See more of our work with the Queens and read an article about Derrick Barry compared to our icon Titney Spears – doing it again since 2008.

There are also 2 more film projects that are on the way as well as plans for shooting music videos to ART’s album Centerpiece. (If you’re in Los Angeles and want to dance or be featured, email TrippyTranFilms@gmail.com ASAP!)

After producing 2016’s Denizen, and after working on the upcoming choose-your-own path show Choices – An Interactive Story, director Anthony T. Tran has been asked to direct a short film by writer/actor Charlie Harris (Escape West Films): QK-Hilltop. An odd, yet fitting name for a movie about the continuance of 1950’s government experiments. Based on true events regarding MK Ultra.

Meet Jaime Helms. Waking up in a dark room, he finds himself trapped – or is it all in his head? The journey of finding himself becomes an obstacle as the world around him begins to distort. Ringing ears and voices can make or break the experimented.

Made originally for Shape AT&T film festival and to be submitted to many more, #QKHilltop is a hallucinatory trip that demands answers by its climatic finish. Be sure to follow it on facebook.com/QKHilltop @QKHilltop and spread truth about the things that are going on that no one dares talk about. Stay trippy!

Also check out the new YouTube channel. Let’s go through the tracks and discuss them, shall we?

Centerpiece

The lead single is full of energy and with a hip-hop pop chill cruising anthem, calling people the centerpiece shows how different many artists out there are and ART A Reasonable Truth is not exclusive talking up their own game, he wants to share it. The inspirational track paves the path for the rest of the tracks that make up a unique conceptual pop album.

Acid

This track will make you wanna bounce like a bunny with its bubblegum pop sound about seeing someone who makes you trippy but then also hits you with that acid. Such is life and even so this fun song is like happiness in a bottle. It’s also first of two tracks on the album that don’t include a rap.

Ready

A more contemporary hip-hop song mixed with some auto-tune and a dirty beat chanting “Yeah – I’m ready for it” puts the third single into full force letting us know that this is still the beginning and yes we are ready for it!

The Recipe (ft. Ayem)

A song that sounds more like a universal pop song, “The Recipe” switches gears with melodies and raps that take us to private island vibes as the song describes being the recipe with so many flavors. Shortest track on the album, featuring Ayem is a pleasant surprise and it’s a memorable jam about being a mix – which ART and Ayem are.

SoCal Waves

Hits for days. This oceanic song will paint you a picture and take you straight to the beach with 100 Cali vibes. That reprise is also highly addicting. Prepare to be taken away to the waves of the Pacific.

Get Down With It!

That first verse electronically builds up and explodes into a club banger that takes you right to the dance floor. This single released on New Year’s Eve and is a jam for years to come. Want to bring the energy at a party? This is your song.

IDGA$

This song is catchy for all the right reasons as it deliberately makes fun of artists who are overly repetitive. ART makes the statement about how we can collaborate and make better releases in the mainstream even with people not caring about real collaboration and only being paper chasers. Love those bongos.

Discover

High energy fast-paced song about discovering life together with piano and electronic sounds building to a climatic reprise, it sounds like a video game as the lyrics want to take you to new territories leading to new zones.

Trip Zone

The album takes a cool slow down to this ambient track that describes the world as a trip zone as ART wants to explore and vacation the world, taking you along with him. Interesting, yet beautiful, this song has several different sections which make this song not only very original, but a fun and mellow ride.

Jubilant Soul

The last dance jam on the album, ART encourages people to show their bright exuberant souls with what we imagine will have a special dance choreographed to the hook. Those raps are insane too. It’s like “Centerpiece” introduces its cousin.

Le Movies

This dark castle piano closer takes a whole new turn as ART expresses how he wants to make his move in the movies once again and even saves some French for the end. The expression through poetry and the fact that this has no chorus also makes for a solid close to the Centerpiece album, proving a bit of what ART A Reasonable Truth can do. Isn’t that reasonable?

Anthony “Rory” Tran turns 30 today.

ART Premieres Hip-Hop Anthem “Ready”

When a tracks bangs such an anthem that could easily hype any sports event, be a song for going out – or even chillen, and just relating to being ready for whatever comes next, this “j-amthem” will make you want to hit that repeat button and the vocals will indefinitely get stuck in your head.

In contrast to the previous 2 singles released by ART A Reasonable Truth so far, “Ready” is a bouncy hip-hop jam with such flare and pizzazz that it stands out with a self-confidence motivational message:

“Check your back, I’ll attack/Yeah I’m ready for it/From the bottom to the top/Yeah I’m ready for it/When you know what you do/Yeah I’m ready for it/Yeah – ‘Cause I’m ready for it”

Artist Anthony Rory Tran is ready to show the world what he can do with music and talent with another banger by Aaron Byrd – the man behind the beat of the “Centerpiece”single. Tran surprisingly let the mix into an Instagram advertised mixing house in New York for this track in particular wanting to collaborate with different engineers on the album for a sense of diversity. The track was mastered in Long Beach by D.M. Gremlin Studios who also worked on a majority of the tracks for the debut album Centerpiece – which is coming to all music major platforms February 9, 2018.

“Ready for something bigger than you can see/Something that can take you and believe”

Is this the new 2K18 banger? Comment your thoughts below and be sure to let everyone know – who’s ready.

“Gotta Be Free ft. ART” Music Video Releases Today

A wild ride was in store after Master T.C. & The Visitors collaborated with director Anthony “Rory” Tran (ART A Reasonable Truth aka Trippy T) on his upcoming psychological thriller Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown in 2011 by contributing the thematic single “La Dee Dah”. When other songs like “Gotta Be Free” were also submitted, ART felt like something could enhance the intro. He wrote a rap, recorded it and submitted it to the band who then liked it so much, that they got it mixed and mastered by a music connection at Atlantic Records – and soon after announced it as their newest single with the music video premiere here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

The video was shot at the infamous Ohio State Reformatory prison where Hollywood movies like Shawshank Redemption, Air Force One and the new Sylvester Stallone movie Escape Plan 3 was filmed right after MTCATV. Lil Wayne’s “Go DJ” music video was also filmed there. ART flew from Los Angeles back to his home state to perform his part last August. The video features Victorian costumes and a jailbreaking storyline. 

See behind the scenes!
