Episode 3: "I Should Have Been a Milkman" by Joseph Fisher-Schramm
"We are all the canvas, and I am the piece."
In his engaging, intriguing song, "I Should Have Been a Milkman," Joseph Fisher-Schramm explores the complex relationship between artist, art, and audience. Poetic and prodding, "I Should Have Been A Milkman" uses a plethora of instruments and vocal lines to paint a picture in which creation and creator spar for the delight of the crowd--but things are not always as they appear. In this candid conversation about the inspiration behind what Joseph refers to as "Milkman," Joseph and Emmeline discuss the influence music school can have on one's compositions, the difference between writing spontaneously and deliberately, and how everything an artist does, hears, or sees somehow weaves its way into their art. To hear Joseph's beautiful album, Starving by Design, Vol. 1, check out his independent record label, A Study in Expression, on Bandcamp.
