New To You ep113a: Parental Influence pt1
Keith Vincent, John Holt, Mary Varn, are excited to be joined again this week by Julien Koetsch. This week we present a pair of picks that fall under the theme “Parental Influence.”
Segment 1: “Book Of Dreams” by The Steve Miller Band (album)
John’s pick for parental influence is a classic rock record from the late seventies that he found in his parent’s vinyl record collection. A blend of the contemporary electronic musical instruments that were becoming popular with the classic rock/jam band sound, this album takes a number of surprising turns.
Segment 2: Matthew Barney and the Cremaster Cycle (artist)
Jules’ influence comes from his father, an artist and university art professor, in the form of the artist Matthew Barney.
The Cremaster Cycle is a series of 5 films, produced out of order over the course of about a decade. Barney explores themes of violence and sexuality, biology and structure, using film as a medium to present sculpture and to present film.
You can learn more about Barney and the Cremaster Cycle through a number of art sites and art reviews. You can often find the full Cremaster films streaming on sites like Youtube, and sometimes they will be screened in art house and museum theatres.
