Interview for Off-Leash Arts podcast

May 11, 2020

Vienna was interviewed for writer Tanya Shaffer's new podcast, called Off-Leash Arts. Tanya and Vienna discuss their collaborative process from when they were working on the musical The Fourth Messenger together. Vienna talked about being stuck for lyrics for Aims, sometimes having to stick with whatever happened when it was time to record. For the second half of the podcast, Vienna comes up with ideas for making a song out of a poem that Tanya's writing group created based on writing prompts. They pick a direction, workshop the shape of the song, and sing a verse together. The baby provides commentary, then Vienna provides her own.
