A great read on Roger Herman

We just read a great piece at T Magazine on Roger Herman, “the most important artist you’ve never heard of.” As the piece states, Herman was part of the1980s neo-Expressionist movement. Gagosian snapped him up and positioned him as the California counterpart to David Salle and Jean-Michel Basquiat.” Trust us, that should get you to read it.

The Math that is Caribou

Posted from The Citrus Report

We like Caribou. This site endorses the great work of Dan Snaith, who is Manitoba or Caribou, depending on what year it is. His newest album, Swim, is by far one of our favorites of the year. T Magazine did a little interview with Mr Dan Snaith, and they talked about math and music. Homeboy has Ph.D in math, by the way.

We like this exchange:

Is it true you have a Ph.D. in mathematics?
Yes, while making two albums and touring — I don’t remember how I did it.

Do mathematics help with making music?
What’s interesting are the more emotive, unpredictable elements of music. Mathematics eventually become abstract and creative too, but it’s very mysterious as to why we like certain kinds of music.
