A Day in the Life: Gabriel Kahane
Friday, December 09, 2016
How do artists refresh their creative lives? Every week, one of our favorite artists will take over our Instagram to reveal his or her favorite forms of down-time. Each week, Q2 Music compiles the takeover into a web feature. Follow the live takeovers on our Instagram account and catch the write-up from the latest feature below.
Composer, singer and songwriter Gabriel Kahane has drawn musical inspiration from Los Angeles architecture, Schubert lieder and Craigslist ads. He's collaborated with Sufjan Stevens and Chris Thile and composed for the likes of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and violinist Jennifer Koh. His latest album, this year's The Fiction Issue, features Kahane alongside the string quartet Brooklyn Rider and vocalist Shara Nova.
Gabriel Kahane takes over our Instagram to document concert prepping, quality cat-time and share a new Q2 Music theme song.
Gabriel Kahane prepped for the day with an original Q2 Takeover song.

My day invariably begins with the bleary-eyed pursuit of beauty, truth, and caffeine.

Working on a tricky spot in a new tune that I hope to sing at my wee gig on Sunday.

My copyist, @roscoegreebletron, is understandably exhausted. At left are his solfège exercises.

I spend a lot of time revising lyrics. Almost as frequently as @roscoegreebletron photobombs via auto-hygiene.
