Transmissions :: Sam Cohen
On Slow Fawn, Sam Cohen, a producer, songwriter, and musician known for his work with Apollo Sunshine, Yellowbirds, Kevin Morby, Danger Mouse and Karen O, creates a glowing, meditative space. Inspired by Terry Riley’s A Rainbow in Curved Air and drawing from long jam sessions with his collaborators, it reflects Sam’s desire to “create a world without friction, where you could float and feel joy.” Combining dashes of jazz, synthesized new age, pop, and minimalist grace and it’s a record we’ve returned to many times over the last few months. Cohen joins host Jason P. Woodbury from his studio in upstate New York to discuss music’s power to connect us to each other, his motivation for creating music, and opening up his own studio.
