Sufjan Stevens & Angelo De Augustine

From promoter: “Sufjan Stevens and Angelo De Augustine have paired up for a collaborative project that does just that. A Beginner’s Mind is their debut album that contains 14 songs (loosely) based on (mostly) popular films. The source material is highbrow, lowbrow, and everything in between. What began as a superficial conceit became a more serious investigation when they scheduled a month-long sabbatical in upstate New York to work together in a friend’s cabin. Their method was simple: watch films at night, sketch songs in the morning. They wrote in tandem—one person writing a verse, the other a chorus, churning out chord progressions and lyrical tapestries willy-nilly, often finishing each other’s sentences in the process. Rigorous editing and rewriting ensued. Plot-points, scene summaries, and leading characters are often displaced by esoteric interpolations that ask the bigger question: what does it mean to be human in a broken world?
