Anna Bulbrook is a violinist (projects from Airborne Toxic Event, to Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, to Beyoncé’s Lemonade) the founder of Gxrlschool, and the co-founder of Metalabel. She joined us from her tree-house in LA. We talk about Kanye West epiphanies. We talk about foraying discipline and practice into the rest of her projects and making impossible things possible. We talk about the parallels between start ups and bands.
We talk about curation by trusted sources, and how that relates to Anna’s new gig as a curator at Ted. We discuss Metalabel and the acknowledgment that creative projects are often done by a collective of people. We talk about transcending boundaries in art and how web3 can help artists distribute their work. Finally we discuss what needs to happen for wider adoption of web3 tools by creatives and get out of the valley of disillusionment.
