Sufjan…

February 1, 2011

Love this photo of Sufjan Stevens who I saw last night at the Arts Centre (thanks H!) …. I have been a big fan of previous more folky albums – so some parts of the concert last night were challenging to some extent. But I respect his choice as an artist to express himself in different ways.  However he uses his voice – it is exquisite. I was reminded in some way of Bowie during his ‘space oddity’ phase – the soundscapes and visuals were wild.  Sufjan spoke about ‘outsider artist’ Royal Robertson (see below) and his influence on the aesthetics and costumes in the show… it certainly gave me something to talk to my students about this morning!
