Inside Channel O's brand new show 'Deconstructed'!

Entertainment Reporter.

If you've ever listened to a song that was so brilliant you couldn't help but wonder what the artist was thinking when they created it, Channel O's new creative series, Deconstructed, is just the show for you.

The show offers keen listeners and aspiring creators alike unique insight into the creative process behind their most beloved musical acts – straight from the artist. It’s like being in the studio with top musicians as they craft their musical gems!

"Having recently turned 25, Channel O aims to remain at the forefront of pop culture and musical subcultures because we go beyond music videos. We also shine the spotlight on the people behind the music, and this show is another fantastic example of that," says Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.

Produced by 21 FPS Media, the setup of Deconstructed is simple: artists talk us through what inspires their work, while also performing a handful of songs in an intimate and creative studio setting.

It's a great way to get to know artists better, in an intimate setting while also being serenaded by them with the fruit of their artistic labour.

Guests on the first season of Deconstructed include Khanyisa, BLXCKIE, Boohle, Emtee, Nanette, 25K, Manu Worldstar, Mariechan, Tshego, Bassie, Thato Saul, Rouge and Lady Zamar.

From the seed of inspiration to the final package, this 'slice of life' perspective on music production takes Mzansi's biggest hits from the charts to the living rooms of discerning fans, through a special audio-visual experience. Deconstructed is a must-see series that connects artists to fans.

Feed your music-loving soul when Deconstructed premieres on 23 February at 7pm, only on Channel O, DStv 320. Music over everything.
