New Song “I’ll Risk It All (feat. ART A Reasonable Truth)” Discusses Feelings in Isolation by Sonanze

It was winter 2012 in Cincinnati, Ohio the days that dynamic duo on several music tracks Sonanze and ART A Reasonable Truth (originally Trippy T) would get together and record music in a basement with instrumentals that Ukrainian talent Mikhail Sinenko would make with Anthony “Rory” Tran, including score music for Tran’s debut full-length film Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown. With a Europop-type vibe on most tracks as well as orchestral sounding tunes, the two finally got together to collaborate on a song.

Sonanze (Sinenko) would make the sounds and even wrote verses lyrically to the previously unreleased demo “I’ll Risk It All” while ART (Tran) wrote the chorus and performed some of the raps already written for him. Together, they created the song that fits even moreso into today’s world while many people are in isolation, unable to do normal every day things due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic we are dealing with: COVID-19 and how it feels to want that human connection of a love that’s waiting for us to find.

Being in quarantine makes us long for more of a human connection and even though many of us cannot create with a team like we used to, we all hope to build greater connections when free of this situation.


ART A Reasonable Truth’s current discography at areasonabletruth.bandcamp.com below includes exclusive releases.

You can hear more of Sonanze on soundcloud as well as ART A Reasonable Truth on most major music platforms with his debut album Centerpiece, where Sonanze also created the instrumentals for the tracks “Get Down With It!”, “IDGA$” and “Jubilant Soul”. ART hopes to finish his original first album with 21 tracks almost all conceptualized that Sonanze created the music for entirely himself. They were in their early 20’s when this project began.

Stream/Buy at http://Artmusic.fanlink.to/WRapper

Music can be hit or miss nowadays, especially in mainstream media, but there is a lot going on in the underground side that most people wouldn’t even know where to look to find hidden gems and hits.

Well look no further, Centerpiece artist ART A Reasonable Truth has teamed up with 7Fifty7 and Ravyyyy (as well as the Rory Man’s other artist name: Trippy T aka Tripp T) to make a bass banging catchy, yet fun – and funny at times – banger called “(W)Rapper”.

The last studio session to wrap the “(W)Rapper” song.

The track started after ART (Anthony “Rory” Tran) helped Frankie Mir and 7Fifty7 on the music video “Highway75” as part cinematographer and co-producer on an all night shoot. See that video below.

So whether you’re not a rapper or a “wrapper” wrapping gifts to yo mama – turn up the bass, get ready to start rapping and singing along as the new single from The Recipe artist celebrates his 32nd Birthday on the red carpet.

Tran will be media for the Gala event at Universal Studios for the Academy Awards event today. Tickets are now $1,000 to attend. He will be taking photos and videos with several others and will be submitting over 200 photos for the Hollywood stars event.

Lyrics: What we gonna do – the original way?
Why we getting country in this bitch?

Y’all gloating about what you can do alright
Need to humble yourself and tell the truth alright
Tell me what you can but what you can’t do
What are you not gonna do?
I’m ready!

Hook:

I’m not a rapper / Not a wrap, not a rap, not a wrapper

The only thing I’ve wrapped was a Christmas present
The only thing I wrapped was a condom
The only thing I wrapped was my friend’s Honda
The only thing I wrapped was a gift for yo mama
I go Amber Rose got no top in the summer
Stuck in L.A. traffic but my life is not a bummer
I’ve been getting smarter but my watch is getting dumber
But my watch is getting dumber
Nanananana
Yeayeayeayeayea!

Where will I go
All stops on these hoes
Making them blow
Because I’m So official
Watching them bow
No stopping us now
Wearing the crown
While Dancing on clouds

Rocking every day like my name is Superbass
Making my own rules every time I get up in the place
In search of morality
It’s a formality
Staying true and free
That’s why they come for me
Your disability
I cross the Seven seas
Keep on sharing the peace
That’s the way I wanna be

The only thing I’ve wrapped was principle photography
The only thing I’ve wrapped was a – bar on this bitch..
Get it because yea.. I’m a rapper!

Hook – Repeats

Candy coated bars
Tell me how bizarre
Mission from afar
In your speakers to the stars

What what

Yeahyeahyeahyeah!! x3

Trippy Tran Films Working On Several New Projects for 2020 Release

The imaginative indie film company Trippy Tran Films is planning several new shorts, skits, a talk show and music videos for ART A Reasonable Truth. Most of the hard work is slated for a 2020 release and is further opening its doors to expand collaboration and artist promotion.

Hosting weekly meetings in Los Angeles, the team has expanded and reached out to several working people in the industry. Director, producer and content creator Anthony T. Tran (aka Anthony Rory Tran) has been working in Hollywood as a background actor and production assistant which has opened new doors for future collaborations.

With the recent re-release of the trippy government thriller, QK-Hilltop – which is based on real experiments in the 1950’s following MK-Ultra – the movie now has an official poster and you can watch it until the end of the year for free here.

Mind control experiments in the 1950’s could still be active today. Make your own conclusion after watching Trippy Tran Films’ latest QK-HILLTOP. For the spooky season, watch for a limited time.

So what about this talk show? Real news has fallen into propaganda and reality-style television and it seems nobody wants to talk real truth in the media. The IDGA$ Talk Show @idgas_talk_show is on TikTok and Instagram as of now promoting old skits and new including PocaHeyHey, contest entries that are funny and original, Titney Spears and more.

The first 3 episodes were taped last weekend in Burbank with more planning every weekend so that the first season can release every week also.

Short films in the works include the stand-alone impersonator sequel to InPersonNation as well as new horror and rom-com our sources reveal.

And of course, ART A Reasonable Truth is Anthony Rory Tran’s artist name who has been planning at least 2 more music videos including the theme to the talk show IDGA$ and the club banger Get Down With It! – as part of his concept album Centerpiece.

Also, episode 2 of Twisted Fates from Choices – An Interactive Story #ChoicesTF is being edited and looking to release by end of November.

Updates may have been lacking, but we assure you a lot of great things are in motion and a lot of new faces are going to be involved in upcoming projects. Be sure to subscribe to all the YouTube channels also on IG and facebook:

Anthony Tran and Dustin James Discuss “Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown” Delay on “My Ex-BFF Court”

Thursday today, if you own the Snapchat app, you can search the Discover page for “My Ex-BFF Court” and see Anthony ‘Rory’ Tran (ART A Reasonable Truth) and Dustin James (Cat Magick) as they go to “pretend” court over a matter of film making and friendship in season 1 episode 12 of the new show by Snapchat TV and Vertical Networks.

The preview:

The premise is simple. Tran began production on Trippy Tran Films’ debut feature film project Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown in 2009, shooting 1 scene and finishing the script. It took until 2012 to complete production due to actors quitting, 3 re-writes and also to help co-produce with writer/producer Christopher Wesley on his supernatural thriller feature Devil’s Point. A lot of things happened during that process and eventually in winter of 2013, the movie premiered as a 2 1/2 hour cut in a local theater selling almost 100 tickets in 1 night.

When Tran was asked to go on a fun court show where we got to bring back a former actor and best friend who quit the project, he sent out real facebook message screen shots and more to the production co. Vertical Networks to talk about what really happened.

Watch the 12th episode of Season 1:

From side characters like Titney Spears to the character Dustin was meant to originally play: Dane Hollywood, My Ex-BFF Court will showcase the drama, the truth and the reality of what happened but also in the form of entertainment as this is technically reality television.

The reality TV truth:

What are your thoughts? Do you think the show was fair to both sides without even knowing the whole story? Who should have won the case?

Trippy Tran Films is looking for a solid feature sound designer for our 1hr45min cut of this film so we can get it out by next year. You can help donate via Paypal @trippytran or message us at TrippyTranFilms@gmail.com if you or someone you know has reasonable rates on sound design and audio mixing/mastering.

Be sure to also check out our new show | Choices | An Interactive Story – a choice-based interactive short live-action video with 4 episodes coming in beta form with episode 1 tomorrow!

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. 🏆

ART Premieres Club Song “Get Down With It!”

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! The new club banger by ART is sure to make lovers of dance music go wild as we bring in 2K18 with “Get Down With It!” Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to get down with it!

Stream/Download “Get Down With It!”

The instrumental beat is produced by Sonanze and has “Centerpiece” singer ART on the track laying some dirty vocals chanting:

“Get down with an altered feeling/It comes and goes on/Get down with a “won’t-stop” feeling/I know I can lose control/Get down with a monster feeling/Get down and let it go/When we begin the chain/You gotta get down on the dance floor!” 

“Get Down With It!” is a party anthem for those who like high energy dance tracks with smooth breakdowns and wild sounds that you can’t help but jump up and down to. I mean, at least my friends and I can’t stop listening. And we like “Centerpiece” but damn – this may be even better. It’s that good. 

A Reasonable Truth AKA Anthony “Rory” Tran has worked with (and plans on working with more on the an already planned second album) musician Sonanze AKA Mikhail Sinenko on this EDM anthem who also created the music tracks to “Unfreeze (2012)” and “Shimmer Of Longing” amongst many others – unlike the recent release of “Centerpiece” who was made by beatmaker A-Rhyme also known as Aaron Byrd.

ART Premieres New Single “Centerpiece”

The new single just dropped – and it went right down your chimney. Happy holidays! With the current state of pop music, just like the film industry, there’s been a lot of hit and misses with overplayed reboots and lackluster content (and lyrics) that seems to cater to the American dollar rather than the beauty and craft of art with the real gems lying in the underground. A new surprise has arrived: introducing ART.

Play and get the new single “Centerpiece”.

Here at Trippy Tran Films, we believe in inspiring, motivating and making positive moves in mainstream media. We are pleased to present the new single from singer, rapper, lyricist, multi-genre artist Anthony Rory Tran who goes by the name of ART – which also stands for A Reasonable Truth, and has originally released music under the pseudonym Trippy T

Fans of pop, hip-hop, cruising-style, electronic infused music will be pleased to know a song called “Centerpiece”  is a life-jam calling everyone a centerpiece with lyrics: “Look now you’re the centerpiece/Saying everybody get like me”.

ART’s debut album CENTERPIECE is set for an early 2018 release and will have 11 original songs.

The music industry is mentioned in verse 2: “Octacables wrapped around me like a label/When it takes hold own the heart and let go” stating that octopus tentacles acting as cables can hold the ‘centerpiece’ tight and you may even go to the degree of interpreting those lyrics as people being constricted by the idea of money rather than the craft.


ART’s debut album of the same name is set to drop early 2018 with more singles to be released. What are your thoughts on “Centerpiece” as a new hit song? ART will also be featured on the new Master T.C. and the Visitors “Gotta Be Free” video set to drop in January. Hear that song here.
