RD: – The World can change the life of an artist. Can an Artist change the world?

 

DA: – All any artist can do is to try to do a good job every day, treat others with respect, and stay on a positive course and remain creative. The world has existed long before humans came along, and will remain when we either extinguish ourselves or all migrate to another planet/we can’t change that. But we CAN be responsible for our own actions!

 

RD: – Music opens doors penetrates everywhere and leaves no one indifferent; it creates nice moments of love and purifies death. What can’t it do today?

 

DA: – I have no idea or interest in what it can’t do. Who cares? My job as a composer, conductor/ multi-instrumentalist is to make some small contribution while I am here and share whatever blessings i have with others.

 

RD: – Lyrical songs and civilizations, music and generations—what can music and its implicit poetry still teach us?

 

 

http://blog.newsok.com/bamsblog/files/2011/07/DavidAmram.jpg

 

 

DA: – That we are ALL creative and that EVERYBODY has a song, a story and some kind of ancestral drum (reflecting their heart-beat) to share.

 

RD: – Does being an artist mean having a perpetually young soul?

 

DA: – I believe all souls are OLD and when one realizes that she or he is blessed with an old soul that keeps one perpetually young.

 

RD: – What advantages does a non-conventional artist have? What disadvantages?

 

 DA: – Today’s non-conventional cutting edge trendy trash of the moment usually ends up in tomorrow’s land fill. Artists (and everyone else) must learn to be brave enough to tell THEIR story, sing THEIR song and paint THEIR picture. What is conventional in some cultures is extra-special to others.  But basic universal principals of the human spirit transcend fashion, geography, gender, race and finance.
Homer, Dostoevsky, Rembrandt, Om Kalsoum (great Egyptian singer), Lao Tse, Chano Pozo, Brahms, Stravinsky, Bartok, Margaret Atwood, George Gershwin, Kerouac and Carson McCullers are a fraction of those who were considered nuts by some and old-fashioned by others during their lifetimes. Fortunately for
the  world, that didn’t stop them from being creative.

 

RD: – Words of suffering or of joy, the rhythms and rhymes of the world make pens and voices famous. What inspires you in your work as an author?

 

DA: – Every conversation i have been privileged to hear, every note of music I have heard, every sunset i have seen and every person i have known, from the rich precious experiences of living an open life, each day is a university experience of learning from others and then remembering those moments as the map-quest GPS road map for a story, book or spontaneously rapped interview recorded by others which becomes 95% of something which speaks to the reader when on the printed page.

Kurt Vonnegut told me just before he passed away « Write the way you talk. »

 

RD: – From Mozart to Marilyn Manson, and from Orpheus to Kerouac, the messages of our favorite musicians/singers /poets influence our lives. Which artist has inspired your life and work?

 

 

http://lynxquicksilver.com/Amram_David_Album_Cover_360.jpg 

 

 

 DA: – I can’t comment on the work of Marilyn Manson, except that he has a brilliant lighting designer, but as far as Mozart, Orpheus and Kerouac, the three of them continue to enrich our lives every day and set standards which inspire us all to work harder. The great film « Black Orpheus » was an extension of the old myth several thousand years later, and like Mozart and Kerouac, remains, the same as Bob Dylan’s song title… Forever Young.

 

RD: – What has been the most beautiful time in your career?

 

DA: – Right at this moment that i am writing you. Charlie Parker’s classic song « NOW’s the Time » was the mantra of the era when Kerouac and I first
collaborated.  It is still and always be the right and only time. And I always encourage young folks to forget about a « career  I tell them « Don’t think about building a career. Build a LIFE! »

 

RD: – Artist or author? Is there a difference?

 

DA: – I always thought an author was an artist, and that all art is autobiographical.  If they are not the same… Viva la difference!

 

 

 

 

RD: – Being a rebel or looking like one? Would you have any good advice on how to become an indispensable artist/author?

 

DA: – Don’t worry about trying to look like a rebel. Or even bother to try being one. Just be yourself, and then make some improvements.
… and take a shower and put on matching socks if possible before going out for any public events.
Got so tired when Kerouac and many of us were rediscovered 50 years later of being expected to suddenly show up as a « Beat » personality, stoned out of my  head, mumbling, whining, and acting like a sociopath bent on destroying the world as we know it…  This infantile approach to our era , by people who should have known better was such a drag that i put on a suit and a tie just to get even, and always was and am still today exceptionally polite and respectful to the most conservative people I encounter.
I realized that this was the opposite of what was expected, but that whether. I liked it or not, I was representing all the great visual artists, musicians, composers authors poets and visionaries who made the 1950s such an important Era.
And now all of us from that time, most of whom were dead and no longer able to speak up for themselves, were now lumped together as « Beat’… a catch phrase which was a way of dismissing us all.
So not fulfilling the cliché of becoming one of the last surviving « Beatniks » is my own act of REBELLION, against the stereotype that places all artists in the same trash basket of society, where we are catalogued as being part of a non-existent « movement » which defined us as worthless losers!
I am not rebelling against society at large, since i never suffered the delusion that society owed anyone ANYTHING, especially those of us blessed to be able to survive doing what we love to do.
I do rebel against that stereotype of an artist being a perpetual victim, and an infantile personality whose only value is equivalent to that of an elephant or a clown being invited to a party, to liven things up. I think we are all more worthy than that. I don’t think it is even fair to elephants or clowns to be put in this position.
Artists are not supposed to be treated, (and certainly should not behave) like escapees form a mental institution who are provided refuge by their hosts in exchange to entertain bored people by acting like imbeciles.
This 19th century European version of the artist (as opposed to most of world where the artist was a CONTRIBUTOR to the enrichment of the culture) resulted in keeping both the self esteem and the salaries of most artists beneath the bottom of the jail. Hollywood didn’t help the situation and the slew of films depicting artists as hopeless helpless worthless misfits, and after wallowing in the wreckage of their lives, justified their existence by dying.
There was never a bio = pic of Bach, who had 20 children and wrote more great music than anyone ever has done before or since. Hr didn’t fit the role of the mad composer.
Now that we have reality TV, the artists of all genres have more room to breath, because real life moronic types can fill the space of the roles formerly  assigned  to us, and when they fall out of fashion, can be gracefully dumped into the vast landfills that dot the countryside of our beloved planet.
The works of all true artists, like the Lascaux cave paintings of 20.000 years ago, are all BUILT TO LAST!

 

 

David Amram & Pete Seeger

 

 

RD: – What are your latest discoveries in the area of poetic culture and musical culture?

 

DA: – That the internet has given us ALL a pardon as prisoners in what I call « The Penitentiary of Bad Taste » Now for the first time in history, we have a CHOICE!
We can stay inside the Penitentiary and continue to consume the avalanche of swill dumped upon us by irresponsible adults who never learned to sing or danced, who are convinced that «  »This is what the Kids want. »
(A mantra I have heard for the last 60 years)…
Like the canary in the coal mine, the record industry is the forecaster of the demise of the ENTIRE globalized entertainment industry which has incarcerated  several generations as unwitting prisoners in that Penitentiary of Bad Taste.
With the blessing of the internet, today’s young generation has a CHOICE!
With YouTube and down loading, we can SEE as well as HEAR some of the finest examples of the entire world’s cultural treasures, performed by the acknowledged masters of those cultures.
This availability is tremendously upsetting to those who have successfully manipulated the tastes and buying habits of the past 50 years.
The panic in the tattered remains of the one monolithic music industry is understandable, because the mismanagers of the precious thing we call music are all slowly but surely going out of business….BUT…… I AM NOT AND NEITHER ARE ANY OF YOU who create any kind of art.
I harbor no bad feelings towards the incompetent crooks who ruled the music industry in the same rapacious way that coal producers practiced strip mining.
They were culturally deprived or they would have done a better job.
By the time they realized that they had killed the goose… it had STOPPED laying golden eggs.
But they didn’t kill music….they just terminated THEIR years of mismanagement.
As Woody Guthrie said: « So long, it’s been good to know ya. »
Like the Titanic, the whole entertainment industry is sinking to the bottom, due to the same mismanagement that plagued the Titanic, but WE are the ones who escaped in the lifeboats, going to our respective next gigs, with endless energy, enthusiasm and talents, ….and we are NOT GOING TO GO AWAY!
So persevere, and as Thelonious Monk titled his great song…  « Straight No Chaser ».
And of course, Mile’s Zen-like title for his 1959 classic, « So What? »… Which is also how he viewed the constant adversity and injustices which everyone experiences in life as well as the arts.
There are more gifted artists today than i have ever seen in my lifetime and a whole new audience for each of us to address ourselves to.

 

 

 

 

RD: – What do you hate about the artistic community?

 

DA: – I don’t hate anything to do with the arts. It is always about community, always about making art always something that I LOVE being part of!
I try to foster love of community wherever I am, playing in a subway station in New York City, by a campfire in Kerrville Texas, a synagogue in Tel Aviv, a mosque in AbuDhabi, a jam session in New Orleans, a symphony concert of my music in San Jose California, a folk festival in Owen Sound Canada, playing  Farm Aid with Willie Nelson in Seattle Washington, playing with Dizzy Gillespie and Los Papines in Havana Cuba, with Candido at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, attending a film festival in Reykjavik Iceland, a traditional celtic « seisiun » in Cork Ireland, playing with a gospel band in Shreveport Louisiana, performing at the annual Lowell Celebrates Kerouac in Lowell Mass, at a Descarga in San Juan Puerto Rico, or conducting my opera : »12th Night » in Boston.
It is all about LOVE, COMMUNITY and fostering the spirit of the arts and those who spend their lives to enrich ours.
Hate is non-productive, and has become a full time job in a non-growth industry Liam Clancy said it best to a group of us at the White Horse Tavern, nearly 60 years ago, whenever a fellow artist started bad=mouthing others.  Years later, Bob Dylan recalled hearing the same thing from Clancy.  « Please » Liam would always say graciously to whoever was delivering a rant.   « You don’t need to ever dwell in that competitive world of the philistines.  Just remember… No fear, no envy, no meanness ».

 

RD: – Music, cinema, theatre and poetry. Jazz, musical performances and lyrical invocations. You have created wonders in those magical fields, working for and with marvelous people, such as Jack Kerouac, Leonard Bernstein, Dizzy Gillespie, Langston Hughes, Dustin Hoffman, Sir James Galway, Willie Nelson, Elia Kazan, Arthur Miller, Steve Martin, Johnny Depp, Pete Seeger and Tito Puente. You’ve composed music for American theatre and film, and your creations as a musician and a poet are famous throughout the world… What would be the most beautiful legend that links you to all that…? And the most incredible?

 

DA: – I have been blessed to work with others and then go home and try to reflect what they shared with the world, to see if I can also make a contribution of my own.

 

RD: – Being artist or musician is a real profession that you can’t just pick up overnight. It takes a lot of work—film showings, rehearsals and personal commitment.  What are you working on now?

 

 

 

 

DA: – When I am not hiding out composing new pieces and working on my fourth book, I am appearing at all kinds of jazz. folk, world music, spoken word and classical festivals, residencies at colleges, attending screenings of the film David Amram: The First 80 Years, performing at book readings and a string of other events In Tulsa, Jackson Miss., Austin Texas, Okemah OK, Karlsruhe Germany, Lebanon, Rome Italy, Portsmouth NH, Lowell Mass, San Paulo Brazil, Moab Utah, San Francisco, Denver and Denver’s largest suburb… New York City!
Also attending three premieres of new classical concert pieces I am currently composing, guest conducting several orchestras as well as being involved in the creation of a new orchestra being formed where I have been asked to be Music Director and conductor. And writing the score for a wonderful new feature film « Isn’t it Delicious? »
Last month I was given the Jay McShann Lifetime Achievement Award and inducted into the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame and then went to Paso Robles Film Fest where I got the first Bruce Ricker Life time Achievement Award, and came back to NY and was rewarded by receiving … a parking ticket!

 

RD: – « I sing, I exist, I resist… » Are you a committed creator?

 

DA: – I keep trying to be. i have told my three kids, Alana, Adira and Adam that I will continue on this path for nine more years , and by that time , when i hit 90, if I  haven’t arrived, …I will enroll in dental school!!

 

RD: – How do you find Europe these days? And America…?

 

DA: – Just back from Bari Italy and going to Karlsruhe Germany next month. Since I speak French, German, Italian, Spanish, and a little Portuguese and other languages, I always feel at home in Europe, and love being there.
And the young artists i meet are phenomenal!
Journals like the one you are creating will bring us all together!
America is going through some major growth changes and emerging from adolescence, and with the discovery after 400 years of the wisdom of the indigenous  First Americans, the Native Americans whom we call American Indians, all of us who arrived by boat over the past 400 years are learning how to dwell  together in harmony.

RD: – A thought for 2012, what message would you like to give to everyone who reads you, watches you and listens to you?

 

DA: – Please know that I am grateful and that i hope what i have done and am doing will inspire YOU to be creative, to follow your heart, and to share whatever blessings you have with others. And no matter how hard it may be, to have FUN while doing all this.
