As a working musician, it’s hard to understand a world where a cow can be sliced in half, submerged in a tank of formaldehyde, then sold to an art collector for millions of dollars.

Making stuff like that sounds so much easier than obtaining a music degree, undertaking the work of song-craftsmanship, writing hundreds of tunes in the hopes that one of them (just one) gets played at my local grocery store. Heck. Just bring me Old MacDonald’s entire farm and I’ll run a 10-for-1 special.

Why do we musicians work so hard to insert beauty into a culture in which Italian artist Piero Manzoni gets paid $126,000 for Merda d’artista, a small can filled with his excrement. Where is the art in this?

This vexation lead me to read 33 Artists in 3 Acts (2014), authored by Economist contributor Sarah Thornton. The book provides a window into the lives of 33 artists and the $60 billion dollar global art market to which they contribute. Thornton’s book left me with me with good news and bad news. First the good news.

Thanks to an unregulated art market, I am capable of throwing together a conceptual piece of art in just a few hours that, if presented correctly, will become an easy way for a white-collar criminal to transform his latest $10 million embezzlement into squeaky clean money.

I could blow up a photo of Lee Harvey Oswald, glue it onto a 10 ft. piece of aluminum, cut out eye-holes, fill the mouth hole with a rag, sell it at a Sotheby’s auction (I am not making this up) and be paid $6.6 million for the work.

The buyer can purchase the work using a credit card associated with a numbered Swiss bank account and avoid paying any kind of taxes because 1) Many galleries don’t report individual transactions – only quarterly earnings and 2) The sculpture can be shipped to a high-security warehouse in Bermuda known as a “freeport” – a place where, legally, assets remain “in transit” and therefore don’t really exist.

That’s all good news to me as an artist because it lets me off the hook in terms of being good at what I do. There’s proof I can put my kids through college without producing a masterpiece. No soulless bureaucrat or corrupt politician can prove my work ISN’T worth $20 million. Whew! I can continue being mediocre…..which brings me to the bad news.

These works aren’t mediocre. They are masterpieces. When you stand before them and behold, they really are. You don’t even need an open mind; a great artist will break your mind open with a crowbar.

I once stood in Atlanta’s High Museum of Art gazing over Radcliffe Bailey’s Windward Coast – a 10 foot by 10 foot room filled with piano keys and a few plaster heads sprinkled on top. That’s it.

But describing it to you that way feels criminal. Because Windward Coast took my breath away. It gave my brain a glorious beach ball of death. The smell of it took me back to a lumber yard I visited as a child. It made me feel guilty for being white. It mashed elements together that shouldn’t be mashed together. The relentless intent of the artist – compounded by human effort – was palpable in the room. It was so much bigger than money. I hope whatever negotiations occurred between dealer and buyer happened in a different room so the energy wasn’t soiled.

And suddenly I’m in the same company as our money launderer and government official; I too can’t possibly put a price on this. And suddenly my inner-artist realizes I can’t be mediocre. My nose has to get back on that grindstone. Ugh.

But for all the cynicism and humility 33 Artists in 3 Acts generated in me, in it I also found a role-model. A role-model who does not cut cows in half. She just works really hard.

Like many middle-class Americans, when I think of art, I think of paintings. Good old-fashioned acrylic-on-canvas-paintings. Beatriz Milhaze, 56, is a Brazilian painter who produces roughly six paintings a year. Starting out, she co-opted studio space with some fellow art students who, in Milhaze’s words, “were there to listen to music and party…I was there to paint.” Today she is the highest paid female artist in Brazil. And yet Milhaze sees her job as no different than a banker (“I go to work every day. I pay attention to detail. I try not to make mistakes.”)

Milhazes’s brilliance can be felt just by looking at Google images. Here’s what a mere “banker” can do when she applies her nose to a grindstone. Hold your breath:

Wedding ceremonies are not for the benefit of the bride and groom. Rather, they are for the benefit of friends and family….and my income as a keyboard player. That lovely couple’s public declaration of life-commitment sends a butterfly effect through the universe only God can itemize.

I once played a ceremony for a bride who – once a world-class gymnast – was also a cancer survivor. The guests that night celebrated far more than the love between two individual people. They celebrated life itself. The energy was so unforgettable, it’s hard to recall it with dry eyes. Seriously, you wouldn’t believe what gymnasts can do on a dance floor when they’re drunk.

In honor of every beautiful, unpredictable moment that ever happened at a wedding ceremony, we bestow upon you – dear customer – our freshest collection of royalty-free wedding music for videos. Enjoy!

One of the best quotes I’ve heard in the ad agency world is, “TV spots shine more when they have sweat on them.” That explains why making content for agencies can be emotionally exhausting. It also explains why the world’s greatest brands give us the greatest advertising; entire armies of creative people are paid to keep their butt in a chair and perspire…so that we may be inspired.

If your butt happens to be in a chair right now editing video for an agency; my fellow musicians and I humbly offer this collection of advertising/branding tracks for use in your sweaty broadcast. Enjoy!

We think Joi Veer’s new single, “So Much Further Than Far Away – Remix”, would fit perfectly in an episode of USA Network’s Burn Notice for the same reason the show fits perfectly into our lives; it stays at just the temperature you need…for as long as you need.

Almost every scene in Burn Notice kicks off with a peppy indie tune that quickly fades down to make room for dialog about spy technology – riveting stuff for nerds like us. And the music always sets the all-important emotional tone: Yes, bombs will explode and people will be kidnapped. But relax – it’s all in good fun.

“So Much Further Than Far Away – Remix” (featuring the skills of LA producer/keyboard/programming wiz named Nifna Mann) possesses that culturally-aware, Tarantino-like stamp of a song that takes itself seriously…so you don’t have to. We hereby nominate “So Much Further Than Far Away – Remix” for inclusion in every future episode of Burn Notice. Don’t ignore us, USA Networks. You taught us spy stuff.

Thanks, Joi, for another outstanding addition to the MusicRevolution.com library.
