Jecorey "1200" Arthur is a classically trained musician and experimental hip hop artist from Louisville, KY. Prior to obtaining his Bachelor of Music Education at the University of Louisville, he had the chance to perform at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, TX and the Jungfrau Music Festival in Interlaken, Switzerland. Though 1200's music can be considered hip hop, it is also heavily influenced by neo-classicism and fusion. 1200’s unique blend of talent, experience, and poly-stylism also appears in local musical ensembles that include the hip hop band Citizens United and fusion group Monolith. His most recent creative endeavor is the 1200 tour, a mixed ensemble that features DJ Deuce, keyboardist and guitarist Nick B, soprano vocalist Jazmyn Aria, and baritone vocalist Tyler Dippold. In addition, the group's structure is also fluid for live shows. In their performance at Headliners Music Hall in 1200's hometown, the typical five-piece ensemble was joined onstage by a twelve-piece chamber chorus and string quintet. 1200 is also the co-founder of a creative collective known as the United Legion of DOOM, which features musicians, artists, designers, producers, and creative intellectuals from around the globe. 1200 has co-executive-produced albums such as Nick B's Transcendence and Hwang's It Was Only Yesterday. By day, 1200 is a music educator who specializes in percussion pedagogy. His most recent educational endeavor has been with AMPED (Academy of Music Production Education and Development), where he serves as the current Program Director. In September of 2014, 1200 partnered with Teddy Abrams, Director of Music of the Louisville Orchestra. The pair designed and engineered Music Makes A City 2014, an event that showcased six performance acts of various genres. 1200 is currently finishing his master degree in teaching at the University of Louisville.
