In EPISODE #4, Jeremy talks with Scott Baxendale. Scott is a guitar player and a guitar maker. A visceral experience at five years old serves as the foundation for his intimate relationship with music. He was awoken in the middle of the night by a strange sound. It wasn't the radio or the record player. It was music but it had a character that he hadn't experienced before. Led by his curiosity, he peered down the hall, and as he rounded the corner to the basement door he could begin to feel it. He opened the door to find Kansas City jazz legends performing at an afterparty hosted by his parents. For Scott, the world had a different hue after this full collision with pure musical expression.
In EPISODE #3, Jeremy talks with Jack Preston. Jack is an artist, photographer, musician, rapper, producer and podcast host. He is also a huge believer in the potential of the city of Atlanta. Jack's music wraps southern roots delivery with time-warped textures and soundscapes. His podcast, Digital Good Times, nearing 100 episodes, brings together disconnected communities through storytelling and technology. As usual, the journey spans philosophy, inspiration, social impact and many other waypoints for the creative process leading to Jack's ultimate definition of music.
In EPISODE #2, Jeremy talks with Aaron and Nancy Hill. This is a story about an electrician-philosopher-bass player connecting with a pop star to foster a musical experience that is far greater than the sum of its parts. Aaron met Nancy in Los Angeles through a collaborative arts project called The Law Band. A mutual respect for each other's creative process grew into further collaborations, and a livelong partnership that goes deeper than music.
Our experience with music is very personal whether we are creating it or consuming it. This experiment will look at music from the ears of musicians, from the eyes of filmmakers and from the hearts of producers, directors and artists. In this podcast, we'll explore these deeply intimate relationships with music and attempt to define it from these unique perspectives.
In EPISODE #1, Jeremy talks with Joel Nettesheim about an intimate experience with John Denver, using the whole song as an instrument, Alan Watts, the songwriting process, unconventionally amazing production techniques, how absorbing the music his Dad used to play on the piano helped shape his musical perspective, and a white Falcon guitar. Joel's music has been described by NPR as some of "the most interestingly odd and unclassifiable music around", which is exactly why we are excited to have him as a Tunewell artist and a friend.
