I love music and I cannot create without it. My musical choices vary but currently, my playlist includes the following tunes.

Pollock liked Jazz, Bowie likes Balthus; Warhol managed a band, Hirst played in one. Art & Music. Music & art. The two go together like golf and a cart.
Unfortunately, I haven’t a musical bone in my body. I will gladly show my art here, there and everywhere, but I am far too self conscious to sing – I’m pretty sure I’d be tone deaf if I did.
As for instruments, I played the clarinet in elementary school. Sounded OK when everyone else was playing. Sounded like shit when they weren’t.
What I lack in musical talent, I make up for in musical appreciation. I love music and I cannot create without it.
My musical choices vary but currently, my playlist includes:
- Air, Surfing on a Rocket
- Beach House, Walk In The Park
- Beirut, Santa Fe
- The Flaming Lips, Do You Realize?
- Gary Jules, Mad World
