Stories of people’s journeys, especially creative ones, hold a certain kind of fascination for me. I don’t have to share their creative interest. I don’t even have to appreciate their vision or their voice. I am simply intrigued by the ways the Creative finds a way to be seen and heard. And there are so many, many ways.
Elvis Costello has a program on Sundance channel called Spectacle. If you haven’t watched it, check it out. He has an amazing list of guests. The interviews are intimate and magical. The performances are a treat.
I particularly enjoyed the episode with Herbie Hancock. The story behind Watermelon Man is an example of taking the things we know and translating them into the arenas where we have no experience.
