A Look into Broadway Hit 'David Byrne's American Utopia'

"David Burns American Utopia is a grand and glorious plea for Human Connection. By Stephanie's a carrick. Sometimes to make art, you've got to build art to layer ideas, colors, values, and textures. Until you've shape, the thing that says what you want to say, David Burns American Utopia Spike, Lee's grand and glorious filmed record of the hit Broadway show of the same name coming to HBO October. Seventeenth is art that has been built a work of great joy inexpressive Nece Tower of song with room for everybody the music some numbers drawn from burns twenty eighteen album American utopia others from. His body of work with talking heads and one a cover of Janelle. Monet's two thousand, fifteen protests anthem hell you tom bowed feels fresh and familiar at once inclusive but also mildly explosive there's an urgency to it as if burn and his troupe of eleven, musicians and dancers were staking ground in a battle we shouldn't even have to fight the idea is that to survive to live in any meaningful way, we must stay connected. It's a principal so glaringly simple at its radical. Burn is an admittedly weird ambassador for the idea of connection. He isn't what you'd call a naturally warm presence at least not in Earth terms even at age sixty eight, he's still like an. Learning. The rules of the planet his awkwardness is his brand but his desire to connect is robust and had vitalize is everything that happens onstage during American Utopia. no-one initial has one job. The musicians are also dancers and singers. Their instruments are strapped to their bodies untethered to any bulky sound equipment, which leaves them free to move and dance around the stage in a series of elegantly orchestrated numbers with burn off at the center though sometimes lurking at the edges like living fringe of the proceedings, the choreography is by dance veteran antibeach Parson all the performers including burn where identical lunar grey suits and all are barefoot. The stage is bordered on three sides by a Shimmery chainlink curtain the grand scheme is. Simple yet never chilly. This is a setting a world where certain essential problems have been worked out creating the space and freedom to play, and so even the songs every longtime burn or talking heads Fan knows well, like this must be the place naive melody a moonlit cottage in ballad form or the Wrigley waggling noodle dance. Slippery people take on new shapes and new life between numbers burn addresses the audience directly spinning amusing tales about where these songs came from. He wrote is Zimba with its lyrics by German Dada poet. Hugo. Ball to respond to a challenge thrown down by his friend and collaborator Brian Eno or us to fulfil our civic responsibilities. He uses lighting trick to show how badly the citizenry is represented when only twenty percent of the population votes and as a prelude to the shows Shiver Inducing version of hell you tom about he explains that he asked Monet's permission before venturing to cover the Song Burns band here. Is racially mixed, but he himself is very, very white. No wonder he approached with caution but he and his band present the song and invocation written in two thousand fifteen for all of us to remember the names of murdered black citizens among them Eric Garner Trayvon. Martin and Amatil. With the synthesis of respect and bristling anger it demands. This number also represents one of the few times league cuts away from this show to flash larger than life portraits at the. Victims, often held by a family member on the screen. It's an act of boldness that works as for burn. He is as ever a wildly and captivating showman though his hair is now snowcap wide his dance moves in changed over the years he's still favors angular Turkey jerky movements like the folding and unfolding of corporate tres ruler, which are often mimicked to grand effect by the dancers around him. But as dazzling as he is, you can take your eyes off him. Than receding his fellow performers become dazzling planets in their own right sometimes, they'll face one another playing to each other even as they played a was other times they marched toward us, resolutely in groups or pairs as if to say, look at any of US individually or all of us at once you can't go wrong. Each performer's style is as distinctive as a fingerprint. There's the cool Tomboy Swagger of Guitarist Andrew Swan the kid next door jubilant of bassist bobby wooden as once in a lifetime rounds to its sublime peak percussion as Jack, Lena Salvato bursts through the Shimmery. Chain curtain with a clash of cymbals a human celebrate Ori- announcement Lee working with one of his regular collaborators cinematographer. Ellen Kuras doesn't just show us the action he too is part of its embrace. He's our stand in our fellow observer in awe though he has the advantage of wielding a camera at the close of the show as the performer snake through the crowd during a rapturous version of road to nowhere Lee turns his camera on the audience American Utopia ran from October two thousand nineteen to February twenty twenty at Broadway's Hudson. Theater, and is said to return to Broadway. Next September and we see it for what it is. This is a group of largely white middle aged people who came of age listening to talking heads as a bunch. They're far less diverse than the performers we've been watching onstage a you could argue that with American utopia burn is preaching to the choir that this is all just an exercise in self congratulatory white liberalism but that would be missing the point in one of his Inbetween Song riffs burn muses that there are lots of interesting things to look at in the world there are bicycles which he famously likes. Very Much Lee even shows him riding away from the show on one and beautiful sunsets and even a bag of potato chips can be visually beguiling but somehow we always comeback to human faces looking at people burn says that's the best American Utopia is about facing the person in front of you or next to you or standing behind you and doing the work of seeing to truly see a person is a kind of song and a world filled with those songs is the ideal to get started burning his troop have hummed a few bars. The rest is up to us.

"Ambient music is a term coined by Brian. In the late seventy S Brian put it. It must be as ignore people as it is interesting and right now. Listening to this album feels like a gift. I've been listening to Brian. You know since the day the very first Roxy Music out and came out in nineteen seventy two I. I heard Roger knows. Music is part of a project he did with. Brian called Apollo. That was thirty seven years ago and the Roger went onto a successful series of albums on his own and Brian. Relief at least ten albums and countless art project since they've not released do music together since until now and I wonder why and I was curious about how. Their approach to making music differed. I wondered about their upbringing. And what music was like growing up in England in the household Roger Surprise. Be With his answer. I remember fairground organ. Records one of which was code the mighty Maringgi and carousel organs. There were lots of like brass band. Dad like brass band and a lot and Mama's country and Western influences that lasted. I suppose I'd have taken the brass band Oregon route and Brian of taken the country Western. Yes so this is Bryan speaking. Of course when I was growing up it was just the birth of rock and roll and we had an older sister for years older than me who was very much into rock and roll so there was that influence because I started listening to rock and roll when I in about nineteen fifty seven so I was about eight that time. That was partly because my sister was listening to so we used to hear those but we also were surrounded by nab basis in something because it was the Cold War and so we had four big airbases within a few miles of the small town that we grew up in and they all they were lots of cafes with juke boxes so we heard a lot of stuff that that wasn't on the radio in England it was American. R&b really southern stuff so that was a big influence in the other. Very big influence for me was at some point are uncle. Stan moved and he said well he was looking for a new place. Could we look after his collection of albums? Which were all sort of big band jazz? Like Nice Paul. Whiteman the white big band not the black bands but poor white. Jack t God yes. I remember hold seemed like a whole winter of getting up every morning in the dark and putting on one of these mysterious big band albums fantastic. You are watt about a dozen years apart with Brian being the older. Is that about right? That's right yeah. There's eleven years. Temporal distance between us and about seventy physical miles. Did you share a common bond? Because that's that's a distance of years. Unlike the four years difference in the older sister. Will you still sharing music in ways for you? Roger was Brian. Someone you looked up to and in that regard or by the time. I was five Brian at move. He was an art student. And I think he if he hadn't moved and it was very soon to be two time with it left so actually. I can't remember to tell the truth. Brian hardly tool. But I can't remember my younger sister either of very bad memory shelter. I can remember certain elements go but no. Brian hit off when he was in his twenty. I Guess What Twenty mid teens? And he was in London Rod gun stay very kindly put me up because you know as a spotty little spot from the stakes and he was a national pop star and is to stay with him. We got on great but for me the point that we really got to know each other when we worked on Apollo which was some years after. This is early eighties. Yes An and then that we realized that Sense of humor were intuitive. What we're up to is actually very close close enough to work easily with and it was so that's when for me the I really really realize. What thoroughly lovely Blakey was so follows first thing you worked on but either it didn't go so well if you don't like each other or what but it's been almost thirty years since you've done something together. What sparked the beginning of this process to make this record? Well we both have our separate careers and we. We weren't living close to each other for quite a long time but we did stay in touch. We we've been close friends for a long time ever since that Apollo time really and it was about fifteen sixteen seventeen years ago that Roger started me sort of almost scrapbook notes of things he was working on and I said. Could you send the Midi files of those because I thought if I have the Midi file then I could do something with it as well? Midi stands for musical instrument digital interface so electronic keyboards don't have mechanical elements except the keys. When you hit a key what you're doing is activating a switch effectively and that activates and electric circuit. So what a Midi keyboard does it just notices way. Your fingers hit how hard they hit how long they stay and when they stopped when they come off the key again so once. You know that you can apply that to Eddie Electronics Keyboards. So Roger could play something on something that sounded like an organ and I could then take that same media. File the file of what his fingers were doing and make it play. Something sounded like a Celeste or like a trumpet or a bunch of kitchen equipment. So Brian Eno emailed me some Midi files for short examples all the same files to help illustrate this process. Brian wrote to say that this I wanNA play. Is the file that Roger sent him using a standard sample piano?.

Tell us your story, but you into taking pictures, and why do you keep doing it? I think it's also worth noting. You'll one of the newer photography in his room you? Yes, the late to the club, but you've got is a lily. I, I'm an audio guy for sure. My original role in this was simply to, you know, to to produce the audio part of of the show and to do the editing and stuff like that. So I think what really got me interested in photography was exposure through working on the show really. Now I have a question you deepen audio and I watch you working and what he was about composition and phrasing everything else does how, how, how do you connect photography and audio? Do you? Do you note any? Yeah. I mean, actions for me. They're really similar in addition to being an audio guy also using -sition. Yeah, you know, I look at Tara played keyboards. Let me ask you do with with music. They talk about coloration a lot, and, and how sounds and phrases overlap each of you find yourself doing? A lot of this stuff with photographic is way you see, because I noted that you like shooting at night, which gives you a lot of opportunity for lot of fading and a lot of blending of of rich colors is it correspond think I've just drawn to like photography that paints broad strokes of emotion for like serene in ominous, kind of scenes, like low exposures. I guess most of what I've done has been, you know, cityscape, I'd probably shoot more landscapes if I was if I was out in nature more. A lot of house I walk around and I listen to music while I'm shooting. And I kind of sometimes I'll listen to the same peace through the shooting process and the editing process. Oh, interesting. So I kinda can keep the same vibe that I felt originally. I like Brian Eno a lot, and I and in a lot of like ambient kind of stuff. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. And it's not the only mood that I try to capture my music, but so far in in. Photography. Most of what I've done is kind of in that that vibe at the end of the day, what keeps you hooked to photography? I think it's, you know, it's an avenue to explore creativity of, and it's another way to express ideas that I try to express in music so far. I've, I've felt like the a meditative sort of mood is what I've been drawn to in and have been able to comfortably manifest through photography and in, you know, continue to do that until I get bored unless you won't question when you do music. Actually, anybody does anything with a passion you get into a head space. Yeah, they hit space that you occupy when you're doing music, are you there photographic Lee yet? Whereas it approaches there's no, because there's a lot of different emotions that I think I can. I can express through music that I haven't been able to to to express infra tiger via. But I mean, I'm, I'm like, I'm real young as protect. I haven't. I mean. And what's the greatest pleasure. I mean, when when you when you feel pleasure from photography wh, what is the the greatest pleasure for me? I think it's the end product. I'll go out and just walk around with no without taking pictures the whole day until I find something I wanna shoot and take one picture. You know what I mean? That's the way I shoot. So for me, it's it's, you know, completing a picture that that I like, you know. And how do you feel at that moment? Well, I short time I feel happy and gratified, but within just, you know that fades and I want to do another one, you know. Any different than the way feel when you finish them Amelio? Exactly. The same. Like for me, the process is is the fun part. The fun is basically over when it's when it's done, like maybe just for like the very tail end of it, it's it starts fading as soon as I finish. That's and that's how music is for me too..
