The Real Pianist Behind The Movie ‘Green Book’

The filmmakers didn’t line up Don Shirley’s original music with Mahershala Ali’s fingers; instead, they got a Julliard-trained pianist to play it. Kris Bowers “had never heard of Don Shirley. Bowers immersed himself in Shirley’s recordings. That made him nervous. ‘I was pretty scared actually once I listened to it because of how intricate it was, how difficult it was,’ Bowers says.” But he transcribed all of the music and then listened to it repeatedly, practicing for up to nine hours a day for...

How Viola Davis Went From Soderbergh-ian Bit Player to Best of a Generation

(Welcome to Role Call, where we examine two performances from an actor – their first defining role and their most recent/last – to get a sense of who they are.) What does it mean to be the best actor of a generation? And is it possible that kind of talent can remain hidden for decades? Those are the questions we need to consider when contemplating Viola Davis‘ explosive, peerless ability to embody another person from root to tip, from birth to death, to their very soul.

The Magic That Happens in a Week

When I first arrived at the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier for a campus visit, I was just in time for the electronic music showcase. I’d had a long flight and a drive through unfamiliar country. I was a little weary, and a little wary. I’d been to a lot of electronic showcases and fixed-media installations over the course of looking for a grad school. They’d started bleeding into each other. And none of them made me feel like my voice had any place in the programs I was visiting. Th...

The Cult of Ganni: How One Danish Brand Ruled 2017

When looking back upon 2017, three particular brands acted as the influential triumvirate around which everything else appeared to rotate: Gucci, once again, led the luxury pack; Mango cornered the hipster-on-the-high-street market; Ganni held a steadfast position as the contemporary brand creating more must-haves than I've had hot dinners, and managed to do so whilst never becoming ubiquitous, over-priced thanks to their wild popularity or bowing to adhere to the industry's set-in-stone catwalk...
