Dolphin Sensations - 106 Green Studio Music - Laura Marín

Added on by Mitchell Wright.

Laura Marín is an artist and writer based in Bogotá, Florida, and New York. She is also someone that I refer to in my mind as sympathetic_puker. I've only met her once or twice but have instagram stalked her enough to know that she would be the perfect person to ask for a playlist contribution. You can find her here @sympathetic_puker

It's called Dolphin Sensations and was pieced together from bits culled in New York, LA, and Cartagena. It's an aqueous solution of sentimentality turned up slightly.

Studio Music - Kurt Kauper

Added on by Mitchell Wright.

I was fortunate to overlap perfectly with Kurt's brief stay at the Museum School in Boston. I was a first year grad student in 1996, fresh out of Georgia, and he had just moved to Boston from LA, having recently finished his MFA at UCLA. I have always loved Kurt's paintings, and he was a very influential teacher for me and a lot of artists I know. At that time, he was the only person I knew who had an equal love for contemporary art, Ingres, and classical music.

I almost never listen to music. I used to listen a lot, but all of the music I used to like became boring to me. Now, only a few songs or pieces are things I go back to. Sometimes, I hear a song or a composition that I love, but when I listen to the rest of the artist’s work, it’s disappointing. The only exception is Bach, whose music I love more and more as the years pass; I probably love him more than any other artist in any form. And I can listen to the same piece over and over, without tiring of it. Bach’s music is both gorgeous, and yet somehow physically painful. I can’t explain that any further, other than to say that it’s a quality I want in art. Besides Bach, only a few stray songs—sometimes songs that I heard purely by chance—touch me for one reason or another. Some of them are here.

Outside it is snowing.  Outside it has snowed, it was snowing, outside it is snowing.

This is a photo of my childhood home.  I keep it in my studio.  Location:  Bourbeuse River, St. Clair, Missouri.  The inscription on the back reads, in handwritten cursive, "Jack and Sue's Trailer. 1978."  The Year of my birth.

Studio Music - Loie Hollowell

I met Loie as part of an excellent VCU graduate class in 2012. Her sexy transcendental paintings hit all of the right notes- visually dazzling, grand, contemplative, funny. She and her work radiate a bright west-coast optimism.. hopefully her playlist can get us through this inauguration weekend. -Ridley  I just found this picture of me in my dad's studio circa 1988, in California. This is where I first learned about the importance of studio music. -Loie

I asked Jon if he wanted to say anything about this playlist, he said "just say I'm the director of 106 if you want." Jon Lutz is the director of 106 Green.

Studio Music - Elise Ferguson

Added on by Mitchell Wright.

The first thing I noticed about Elise Ferguson, aside from her luminous, strange, beautiful paintings, is that she is irreverent, funny, and kind of a badass. (See photo.) Elise will have a solo show at 106 Green next month, September, 2016. We can't wait!

1982,  just moved to DC from Jacksonville, Florida.  This photo kinda sums up where this playlist springs from.  Punk rock fans, please note the "flipper" earring.

I started this section of the site for purely selfish reasons, so thought it was probably my turn. Lots of stuff that I've been introduced to, lots of oldies. hope it doesn't lean too dark. Very slight nod towards the town of Athens, Georgia. -mitchell

Studio Music - Letha Wilson

Added on by Mitchell Wright.

I've always loved how Letha's work is born out of long hikes and lived experiences...her feet and hands have touched the land she shoots. She finds an approachable intimacy and personality in the unapproachably sublime. As friends who have traded and talked a lot about music, I take a weird pride in knowing she's first hearing Kurt Vile's masterpiece Child Prodigy at my recommendation, while driving through Wyoming to see Devil's Tower. And thanks to her for turning me on to Run the Jewels, I've repeatedly watch the video of them backed by TV on the Radio destroying Angel Duster on Colbert, one of the best performances on a talk show...WATCH IT. Thanks Letha. - Jon Lutz

Funny because when throwing this mix together (which was actually very spontaneous I did it the next day after Jon asked me) the Origins of the songs somehow lead me  - besides places, and times associated with them, the Persons who introduced them to the music. The first Five songs , and the Bad Brains, are from my sister — she made me a very impressive mix tape when I was maybe 15 that totally obsessed me and I still am trying to recreate the playlist today. She made me a couple more mix tapes in the years after that, but all I have lost over time. And the mix definitely covers some grounds as far as moods or types of music:) - Letha Wilson

Letha was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Greeley, Colorado. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Her work can be seen here.

Studio Music - Erin Weckerle 

I was excited that Erin Weckerle agreed to do the inaugural playlist for the studio music section of the 106 site. Without her I would never be in this space and would never have opened the gallery. I've learned by watching her to never be set back by the city, just keep plugging away. Thanks Erin. - mitchell.  

Erin's work can be found at erinweckerle.com She is a DJ KPISS FM (archived playlists here) and you can catch her DJing around the city.
