Know Art: Sharing the work of Artists
I was looking through the free video podcasts on iTunes one day and came across an NPR music podcast. They have a show called 'Project Song'. The first episode I have watched just really impressed me. The idea is that they select a musical group or band or artist and they provide them with a series of phrases and pictures. They have to pick one of each and write and record a song in two days based on them. The group in this episode was 'Georgie James' whom I just really loved and may try to interview at a later date for Studioloo Magazine (coming Jan 2008 - will announce more later). Anyhow, the creative process is fantastic. I really suggest you check this out. |
The phrase they selected was 'Something Joyful' and the picture was this old pile of books in the middle of a room.
You can see the videos here - I suggest watching the whole 'Two days in the Studio with Georgie James' video but if you are short on time - check out their finished song video. It's really lovely.
