garage and musak -Kurt Cobain


Canadian Interview

Cobain spoken of his artistic profession, and the non-artistic hassles of entertainment business, and clears some misinformations of inspirations ans such. From my fan readings of art guilds, its appears to be still relevant. Social observations of “coercions” such as alleged forced “trolling” forced stalking from fans, slander, pirating is a problem that goes on today.
Musicians, actors, and soon “INTERNET celebrities react by seeking protections of including lawyers and security.

Today more people understand the street theater and “mobbing” consciousness – perhaps Cobain was a victim of it, as it is alleged about the music business (put a finger on that ). plausible scenarios:

  • the musician faces harassment, the harassment COULD have been provoked, this is not the musicians problem directly, but the reaction is to hire lawyers, security, etc.
    The emotional and social pressure can affect the artists art and personal life and health.

word-music interwoven

Kurt Conbains and Nirvanas releases stand as integraded woven Gestalts, neither the music or the lyrics stand alone as half the quality of the whole of any song. thats my estimation.
Cobains influences include early folk-blues Woodie Guthrie and LeadBelly, as he cited in his interviews; Early REM, Leonard Cohen, and amplified deconstructions of Sonic Youth and the Raincoats.
Some of my Favorite Nirvana Hymns as

  • ” In Bloom ” -the lyrics remain as fresh and topical as when written
  • ” Come as You are” – disarming friendship song
  • ” Mollys Lips” – crisp cover of the Vaselines
  • ” Aneurysm ” – long time ago my alarm clock was set to wake up to this song, Daily
  • ” Sliver ” – child frustration at grandmas house

The “Priest” They Called Him – collaboration between Curt Cobain And William S. Burroughs, spoken of in the interview can be found at https://is.gd/ul7DK6

This Machine – Apologetic Angst. “Rape me”

The lead singer and songwriter of the music band NIRVANA, spoke of releasing rape me do his own desire to clarify earlier masterpiece as “Polly” Cobain felt his art is out of context and that he is misunderstood. All though this was true of casual fans, his most loyal fans understood the his work completely. perhaps fans of T.S Eliot “Waste Land” understood its narrative style.
(“Polly” is a daring peace of art, where the musician perspective-takes , the detached emotions and reality of victimizing, and very probably mental ill psychopath.)

Kurt Cobain and Nirvana

Nirvana formed circa 1987 and is best known as a trio,that included Kurt Cobain (1967-1994), Krist Novoselic, Dave Grohl
Album hi-lites, my opinion, Bleach, Nevermind , Incesticide , In Utero
and the Live Cuts: “MTV Unplugged in New York” , “From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah” , and “Live at Reading”

Vivaldi’s “the Four Seasons: Spring ”
& Sand Animation film by Ferenc Cak

you tube video posted by franzhun

(I particularly love this video at 1:45 where the artist starts with the image of birds in the sky…that transforms into a figure the face of a woman, then the figure if filled in with emotive facial expression.)

I am both envious and appreciative of Artists. they are able to pull figures out of backgrounds with a few strokes on a canvas.
Often its just a swirl and a sweep of lines, enough to provoke the art appreciator (in this case, me)..
to fill in the rest with his mind, experience and emotions.

The Artist and Appreciator together form images and share aesthetics on the common meeting- ground of a canvas… The Artist and the Appreciator share a complexed timeless wordless communication.. shared ideas and emotions

An interplay forms between Artist and Appreciator

  • A  new figure form out of a ground
  • Its not necessary for an Artist to draw or even explain every detail…
  • Its not necessary of the Artist to analyze the artists motive.

-The Art critic may analyze the motives of the “Artist” .
-A neurologist may map on and explain the way an appreciating on-looker perceives images,
However neither  fully understand the communication, until step into the gestalt fully participate in the Artist-appreciator experience.

the Artist who initiates this communication
I am able to appreciate this communication
we, togethe,r are participate in this communication.

Added Revision:  I  was listening to music yesterday while working on some home-improvement projects (including mounting some art on a wall).  Vivaldi’s Four Season was playing. I thought of this video.  Here it is again.
