Notes from the edge ~

David Axelrod was, and will always be sensational. A transformative figure whose imprint truly resonates not only across the architecture of sound he worked with, but whose vision remarkably transcended norms and conventions of an era β€” still inspiring and informing music lovers today. From encouraging and developing black artists, producing utterly timeless hit singles, unveiling mind-bending solo albums spanning mystical/alchemic themes to environmental awareness and spiritual connectivity ~ to the rediscovery: from countless sampled beats to meticulous archive. Axelrod will always be a great reminder to this powerful magic we can indeed conjure, where poetry, art, being and politics intersect into an aesthetic of life and work melded into one. β€’
I love that every day I drive by the Capitol Records building (where David spun his madness from 1963-1970), a living myth and an awesome part of our weird LA landscape latent in every day inspiration. Huge thanks to Eothen "Egon" Alapatt (@nowagain) β€” for his archaeology of the highest order in being a part of bringing forth this man to much deserved recognition and attention β€” much of our knowledge is owed to fellow nerds like you. β€’
Safe travels, David Axelrod ✨

Excited to announce this one 🌹
Sergei Parajanov's sumptuous 1969 film, The Color Of Pomegranates, will see a debut theatrical presentation featuring original music β€” Nicolas Jaar's own Pomegranates score β€” on Wednesday Feb 22 at @cinefamily . Not to be missed!
