It's a new episode of the podcast! I think this is a good one. It's all about working together. Collaborating. Making magic by gathering in art. With people just like you, dear listener!
Happenings and Such
How are you? Can you believe we've been in the pandemic for about a year already? Can you believe the podcast is nearly one year old already? I know; it seems impossible.
There's a lot to talk about in today's opening segment. I catch you up on all the things. I give you an update on my upcoming album, microorganism, which will be available soon on all your favorite digital platforms. I talk about cannabis and my current relationship with the plant. There's even a little bit of #GearTalk in today's episode – hear all about how I've locked in my electric guitar effects pedalboard. It's been an adventure.
Following the Fear of Collaboration (To Riches and More)
I did a lot of stalling in today's episode. Entertaining stalling, but stalling, still. You see, I hold a lot of fear around the subject of collaboration, the main topic of today's The Matt Kollock Show.
Lately, my personal life has been uplifted and improved via collaboration with others in relationship. Annie, my partner, has made life better, easier and more rich and fulfilling. I bet she would say similar things about being in partnership with me. Our collaboration in love has been amazingly fruitful. It has inspired further collaboration with others in friendship. Life is great!
However, successful and truly fulfilling artistic collaboration eludes me. Or, I should say, I elude it.
I have had some good collaborations in the past, musically, but I can't help but dwell on the shitty ones.
At the same time, I can't stop thinking about the magical possibilities of collaboration with other artists and musicians. I need to conquer some fears to get to where I want to be, though.
It was a fun, challenging talk with myself, and I hope you dig it! Interesting that my episode about collaboration features just me, Matt Kollock. Ha! We'll have some guests on the show soon. I promise! Also, who cares!
So yeah. Collaboration. How do you feel about it? Am I just weird? Do you have any advice for me? I'd love to hear from you.
Until Next Time
Look at us! We made it to episode 18. Fun! I feel like I'm on a roll with this thing.
