Striking beauty in this conversation with Regina Spektor ... just as one would expect! Massive kudos to the lovely interviewer... Taza!
On performing: "It’s really really really good. [laughs] I don’t know - it feels kind of like a shower or something. Cause it just kind of pours over you in this way, it feels so positive and just, really great. Shows feel like everybody’s going through something together. And then there is this atmosphere that happens or this world that happens and only the people that are there really understand it…"
On what she wants in life: "I guess just all the things that everybody wants: To feel like they’re actually doing something and not just reenacting the same thing over and over, and not getting stuck. Just opening your mind and seeing more of the world and trying to understand how people live and what they think. All that stuff that will sound really fluffy and disgusting if you write it down. Just be part of the world. Really really live. You know? One of my big goals is to just not do things out of fear but [to] be really open, which is hard I think. It’s a full time job for people to stay really open. It’s like a second job. But also - I don’t think it’s good to just do one thing. I don’t think if you’re a musician you should not just be immersed in music. I think it’s really important that if you’re a musician [to] try writing a play or something. Things need to complete other things."
And the best news of all, on the future: "I’ve been writing music for a Broadway show…"
Can't wait to see that.
