Song Exploder

From the Song Exploder official site:

Song Exploder is a podcast where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made. Each episode is produced and edited by host and creator Hrishikesh Hirway in Los Angeles. Using the isolated, individual tracks from a recording, Hrishikesh asks artists to delve into the specific decisions that went into creating their work. Hrishikesh edits the interviews, removing his side of the conversation and condensing the story to be tightly focused on how the artists brought their songs to life. Guests include Björk, U2, Metallica, Solange, and over a hundred more. Full list of episodes.

Four amazing examples:

A Little Film About… Malika Favre

A Little Film About... Malika Favre from Handsome Frank on Vimeo.

Malika Favre is an artist who needs little introduction. Her instantly recognisable style sees her create beautifully bold vector illustrations which simplify down her subjects their bear essentials. Her work has adorned billboards, magazines and book covers the world over and her recent collaborations with the New Yorker magazine have raised her profile yet further and seen a whole new audience discover her incredible work.

In this short film directed by Jérôme de Gerlache, we learn about her work process, influences and get a behind the scenes glimpse of her home studio in East London.

Rigoberto González - The Strangers Who Find Me in the Woods

               after Thomas James

 

The strangers in the woods must mimic squirrels and crackle 

with the undergrowth. They must not flinch at the cruelty 

of breaking golden leaves with their feet, or of interring stones. 

And like any of these deciduous trees in autumn they must be 

 

stingy with shadow and move deceptively across the sludge. 

I listen to these strangers stirring with the evenings. I invent paths 

for them to the soft edge of the lake. Each descent is as graceful 

as a sinking ship, but less tragic somehow because these strangers 

 

don’t possess a lung. I cannot hear them breathe, yet the air 

is all whispers, all sighs—the same ethereal muscle that rubs 

the color off the foliage. I lost my way out of the woods on the night 

every bird went south or numb. A plump rat snatched the moon 

 

and dragged it by the white rope of its tail. The strangers were 

a cloak of silhouettes flattening against a trunk like bark. 

I must have disappeared among them because the mouth I touched 

was not my own and was cruelly closing in on someone’s rib. I carried 

 

such a bite on me, an arc of green and yellow on my side from the man 

who said he loved me. In that darkness I knew as much about him 

as I did of the amputee swimming his way up the hill with his 

only arm. So this is the home of the unturned stone where 

 

the fugitive keeps his kiss! Archeologists will discover a paradise 

in the place no touch died of neglect. Is it any wonder all things 

forgotten or abandoned find their way here? The winter is back, so too 

the bloated body of a book I tossed over the bridge last week. 

 

And there on the bench, is my old smoking habit, a cigarette 

glowing on my mouth like a beacon. I’m patient, waiting for the fugitive 

to claim me as his own. I’m as wise as any stranger here, alone but with 

the knowledge that the grief of separation is always brief.

Lie to me. Engañame.

Johnny - How many men have you forgotten?
Vienna - As many women as you've remembered.
Johnny - Don't go away.
Vienna - I haven't moved.
Johnny - Tell me something nice.
Vienna - Sure. What do you want to hear?
Johnny - Lie to me. Tell me all these years you've waited...
Vienna - All these years I've waited.
Johnny - Tell me you'd have died if I hadn't come back.
Vienna - I would have died if you hadn't come back.
Johnny - Tell me you still love me like I love you.
Vienna - I still love you like you love me.
Johnny - Thanks. Thanks a lot.

Thom Gunn - In Trust

            You go from me

        In June for months on end

    To study equanimity

         Among high trees alone;

     I go out with a new boyfriend

And stay all summer in the city where

         Home mostly on my own

         I watch the sunflowers flare.

 

             You travel East

        To help your relatives.

   The rainy season's start, at least,

        Brings you from banishment:

    And from the hall a doorway gives

A glimpse of you, writing I don't know what,

         Through winter, with head bent

         In the lamp's yellow spot.

 

              To some fresh task

         Some improvising skill

     Your face is turned, of which I ask

         Nothing except the presence:

    Beneath white hair your clear eyes still

Are candid as the cat's fixed narrowing gaze

        —Its pale-blue incandescence

        In your room nowadays.

 

             Sociable cat:

         Without much noise or fuss

    We left the kitchen where he sat,

          And suddenly we find

     He happens still to be with us,

In this room now, though firmly faced away,

          Not to be left behind,

          Though all the night he'll stray.

 

              As you began

        You'll end the year with me.

   We'll hug each other while we can,

        Work or stray while we must.

    Nothing is, or will ever be,

Mine, I suppose. No one can hold a heart,

          But what we hold in trust

          We do hold, even apart.
