So anyways...I recommened that you read this interview with Micky, member of Mexican band Molotov. I like the socio-political themes in their music but yeah, sometimes it's difficult to take them seriously when they sing about making a "chandwich a la chichona" and so forth...but then I think their sarcastic and crude content of their music has also been a big part of their success. Just works better with the young audience. Anyways, the interview is about censorship and how they faced many obstacles through Mexican media and government.
Censorhsip is a big concern in art as it is for music and it gets difficult to work as an artist when the lines between art and institutional control cross more often. I plan to make some pieces soon that are direct comments about gerrymandering, especially in concern to the recent redistricting of the congressional districts in Texas. I know it's going to piss some people off, especially Republicans, but I just want to represent the obvious..so no this is not some sort of political-democratic response as more as a social commentary. I won't decsribe the piece yet just for my own private and professional reasons. It will go into the Artsreach exhibition at Sunrise Mall in May. Oh yeah, the tentative date for this exhibition is in May 15th. So keep an open ear and eye.
