The Occuponics is a musical collaboration inspired by the energy, experience and values of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement. Founded by musicians Paul Stein on accordion, melodica, claviola, and vocals and Stephen Carl Baldwin on guitar and vocals, The Occuponics is inclusive, eclectic, and participatory. Paul currently anchors The Occuponics and is joined by other musical agitators.
Since mid-October 2011, The Occuponics have joined with a wide range of musicians and singers to send a message of change, bring people together, and raise their spirits. From Liberty Plaza to Foley Square to Times Square to East New York (Brooklyn) and Fordham Road (the Bronx), we have marched and raised our voices in song, introducing traditional protest music and our own original topical songs and those of sister and brother musicians.
Please share the music found here, in person and on Facebook and other social media. The more links we create, the more the music will spread. And if you see us at OWS, at a march, at a rally, or at a demonstration, join in and become part of the progressive musical collaboration known as The Occuponics! All voices and instruments are welcome and will help this global movement grow.
Occupying for Change,
Paul and Steve
