One Question Interviews: Ghostlimb

Justin Smith (Ghostlimb)

SPB: It seems people are often surprised when they hear of musicians holding higher degrees. Why do you think that is? 

Smith: I think the common view of music and “art” culture is that it is a crew of degenerates or hippies. I would argue that at the crux of these initially DIY scenes and whatever genres came out of them, there were ideas. This is a different form of communication and perhaps going on to study related ideas presents a deeper look into issues that everyone discusses on a base, human level. Also, screaming is not the best way to communicate and probably sounds barbaric but it is cathartic and necessary.
