Music and Love: A Conversation with Rodney Waters

Love is one of the most transformative phenomena we experience as human beings. It has sparked inspiration, creation and action in the world, and impacts us both on a monumental and mundane level.

Likewise, music is an ever-present source of beauty and feeling. It relies on human subjectivity in both conscious and unconscious ways in playing, listening, and interpreting. In this conversation, pianist Rodney Waters speaks on the intersection between music and love, psychology and artistic creation, and how aesthetics and the drive to create are mediated by love and feeling.
