One Question Interviews: Ghostbot Records

Andrew Schubert (Ghostbot Records, recording engineer)

SPB: Besides music, what other arts are you into?

Schubert: Music is what I'm most passionate about. It's how I mark time and set placemarks in my life. I can remember events by what song was playing on the car stereo. But I love visual art as well. I'm not as good at remembering names or why a piece is culturally important. To me, it makes the most sense to explain it in regards to music. I love album covers, the sense that it can enhance or destroy a set of songs. That artwork can influence the listener. Or that it can enhance the meaning of an album or single, can add to the depth of the music.

I love physical media. Not clutter, but I really love the idea of owning physical copies of things that are important to you. I love that art takes on a new meaning with each owner. A painting means something entirely different to the artist than it does to the collector that purchase and frames a print of the same piece. Same with literature. There have been books that have shaped my life, have helped me to change my perspective on the world. 

I think that trying to comprehend art helps to understand other people, and that being part of an artistic community is about being with other people and challenging your own ideas. To help society grow.....oh fuck, this sounds like hippie shit.

Basically it's important to create content or create things that you love.
