|PODCAST — Sawyer Fredericks Interview by WPKN’s Mike Horyczun — [699 plays]
from the Gazette Review: “American singer-songwriter Sawyer Fredericks came to the public’s attention after winning the eighth season of the NBC singing competition, The Voice. Born in Connecticut, he grew up in a New York farm surrounded by music. As such, singing was something that he naturally fell into at a young age. Later enrolling himself in voice lessons, he began performing at various events- from open mics to Local Farmer’s Markets at the age of twelve. Gradually pouring more time and effort into his hobby and passion, Fredericks eventually released his own independent LP entitled, Out My Window by the time he was fourteen. From there, he was scouted by talent agents from NBC’s award-winning series The Voice, who invited him to audition for the popular reality TV show. After gaining approval from all four of the judges, Fredericks found himself striving toward fame in the competition. Despite being the youngest contestant, he ultimately proved himself to be a worthy contender.”

We want where we live to be ours. We want our homes to reflect us, There are over 70 million free-standing homes, but very few of them were built by those who live in them, and no apartment, condo or co-op was built with anyone in mind. So we Decorate: color, furniture, lighting, carpet our stuff- us.
But there is an ethic in design, one where the making is itself an art experience: where the way of creating, building, experiencing a home is richly evolved. It’s ornament, it’s craft, it’s architecture: Its origin, it’s meaning and it’s design is not to create a surface of frozen time – here, design is used and has beauty in its essential utility in use and function.
Three of the most accomplished, skillful and engaging design/architecture/artist creators in the world are with HOME PAGE this week. In studio is Yale-trained architect Louis Mackall – for 50 years his unbridled creativity was in everything he did – but he managed to also create Breakfast Woodworks with Ken Field about 40 years ago. Although Breakfast has new owners the founders still work on site. The work is incredible, award winning in every environment and in many regions.
A special treat this week will be an interview with sculptor, artist, craftsman Kent Bloomer – he trained at Yale and never left the area: teaching at the school for two generations. He may be the greatest definer and builder of architectural ornament in the world: In fact, he is. Bloomer’s book with co-author Charlie Moore, “Body, Memory, Architecture” is required reading (www.amazon.com/Body-Memory-Architecture-Yale-Paperbound/dp/0300021429). His insights into why we decorate, why ornament is an extreme leap to the universal, the intimate, the alive is both compelling and fascinating.
Lastly, architect Barry Svigals, is also Yale trained in architecture school. He started his own firm a generation ago and his work exploded to have a huge impact on everyone who uses them. His work can be seen in schools, apartment buildings, institutions, but completely in his art: the exquisite, evocative personal expression they embody goes beyond embellishment to inspire the entire building composed under Barry’s hand. His most famed project is the just-completed Newtown Elementary School, where healing and hope found their essential beauty in Svigals’ ethic.
