  • Thrive: When Life Prevents Creation

    Welcome to Thrive! A weekly advice column for creatives and the generally confused.   I’m sure you’ve noticed that life gets in the way of art often and even the most extroverted of artists can crave solitude and consistent days to get their best work done. But the world won’t create this space for us, we have to make it ourselves, which is hard and exhausting and some days doesn’t even seem worthwhile.

Introspective and meandering, each tracks plays out as a living, breathing entity. When Echols, a classically trained guitarist, reconnected with former student Yuliya Tsukerman, he discovered a mutual interest in creating expansive universes layered with cosmic imagery and autobiographical detail. Tsukerman, a Brooklyn-based filmmaker and marionette artist, first set out to create a sparse visual landscape for the album’s opening track — an endeavor that gradually expanded into a sweeping, meticulously handcrafted 15-minute film. Echols mentions that, in the first stages of the…
