Film Acoustic:

We’ve been for­tu­nate to be hired by the Mod­ern School of Film to cov­er their Film Acoustic series. 

The idea is that they find a real­ly artic­u­late musi­cian who then picks an inter­est­ing film— we all watch the film togeth­er and then talk about it, the artist’s cre­ative process, etc. And true to the name, the artist usu­al­ly sneaks in an acoustic set. 

This one was held at the NC Muse­um of Art in Raleigh, and fea­tured Ben Gib­bard of Death Cab for Cutie.
Our film was the indy great Slack­er and the con­ver­sa­tion was won­der­ful. 

 My favorite take­away, was this quote from Ben : “If you have one thing to say, you have many things to say” (basi­cal­ly: relax, cre­ativ­i­ty repeats). 

I always enjoy the peeks back­stage, and watch­ing peo­ple, like our inter­view­er & series cre­ator Robert Milaz­zo, work­ing till the last sec­ond on his inter­view research (see him in the glow of his iPhone above). 

There are bound to be more of these events in the Tri­an­gle, so, keep an eye on NCMA & the Car­oli­na The­atre for the next date.
