Watch: Rick Rubin – Music and Spirituality for the New Year
Let the dulcet tones of Rick Rubin guide you into a state of peace and tranquility for the New Year5-Jan-2013
Mentor, producer, music guru, sage and all round cool guy; we’re talking about Rick Rubin.
Watch as the God-like figure contemplates life (and what a life he has had) and art amongst the stunning cliffs and the peaceful environment surrounding his home in Malibu.
This short film shot by Alison Chernick for Nowness shows Rubin reflecting on life and the harmony in nature and how the two are integral to each other, the importance of creating perfection in art, and the transcendental power of sound.
We then get to join in on Rubin as he undergoes a guided meditation, something he has practiced since he was a small child, inspired by yogis. His beard, untouched since he was 23 years old, shows his admiration of the yogis. What a peaceful guy. The whole thing is very relaxing, inspiring and peaceful.
“He is on a journey through the spiritual and creative wilderness,” says Chernick. “It’s transformative to witness.”
Witness it here, folks. Enjoy.
