Cornyation is an annual program of staged, theatrical parodies of social and political current events, that takes place every April, during Fiesta San Antonio.
In late 1993 I composed the music and lyrics for the Corny Rap Music Video and the Cornyation Overture, both of which would play at the beginning of the 1994 Cornyation (and several subsequent Cornyation performances).
In early 1994, I recorded the music at Emerald Studios, and produced and directed the Corny Rap Music Video at Maverick Studios, both in San Antonio, TX.
The Corny Rap Music Video features Jesse Borrego as the main performer and singer, and a cast of crazies from the Cornyation roster as chorus line performers.
