Beats & Burn Vol. 41: Musician Jeffrey Silverstein & Artist Corbin Becker

Beats & Burn Vol. 41: October

 

There's a special kind of magic that happens when fall first hits in the Pacific Northwest. Leaves change colors, the sun's still shining, and taking a walk around the neighborhood feels worthy of its own hi-fi soundtrack. Jeffrey Silverstein's playlist for volume 41 of Beats & Burn is the perfect soundtrack for a fall stroll, whether you're here or elsewhere. Plus, we love Corbin Becker's Halloween-inspired artwork to throw some festive vibes into the mix. Read on for how this mix and artwork came to be.

Notes On The Mix

"To me, one of the best ways to get to know a city is through its music scene. I have been blown away not only by the quality of songwriters and musicians in Portland and the surrounding area, but by the venues, promoters, and sound engineers working hard to maintain an inclusive spirit in the music community. This mix has both PNW staples (Michael Hurley, Marisa Anderson) and some of the best up and coming artists in town (Y La Bamba, Plastic Cactus)."

Notes On The Artwork

"This here is an illustration depicting a spooky monster mash for the season. Porches have been a happy theme for me lately as something to admire walking by as well as spending my own on time and meditations on. It seemed only natural to be the setting for a casual Halloween dance party."

About Corbin Becker

My name is Corbin and I live in Portland. When I’m not staring into the abyss at the place that pays me it’s fun to make art and participate in various projects such as this. One day I dream of doing a mural. Check out my Instagram for more art and my cute doggo.  

 

 

Beats & Burn Vol. 40: Chef Doug Adams + Illustrator Kate Bingaman-Burt

BEATS & BURN VOL. 40 - SEPTEMBER

In honor of FEAST Portland, the annual food and drink festival bringing together culinary stars from across the country, we asked Doug Adams, Top Chef finalist and Co-Founder, Partner, and Executive Chef at Portland's Bullard and Abigail Hall for the tunes that keep him going while he spends countless hours at the Texas-inspired eatery. We asked Portland's Kate Bingaman-Burt to lend a hand in creating a signature illustration to accompany Adams' playlist and love what she came up with. Read on for their inspiration in creating their work! 

 

ABOUT THE PLAYLIST

"All of these songs are heavy on instrumentation and improvisation, which is the type of music I find myself drawn to over and over. I like heavy guitar riffs and heavy grooves mixed with unique songwriting. I love listening to music while driving and these songs are what I find myself drawn to after a long day or a when I'm in a good mood. They remind me of friends lost and friends I've still got and that always makes me feel something, which is what I look for in music... to feel something."

Doug Adams is the chef behind Portland's Bullard and Abigail Hall and co-owner of Holler Hospitality. He was a finalist on BRAVO's Top Chef: Boston. Follow along with Doug on his Instagram

 

ABOUT THE COVER ART

"I love drawing maps that no one would ever use to find a location, but still very much elicit the feeling of place."

Kate Bingaman-Burt is a Portland-based illustrator and Graphic Design professor at Portland State University, as well as the owner of Outlet PDX, a studio space that hosts workshops and pop-up events. Follow along with Kate on her Instagram

 

 

 

Beats & Burn Vol. 39: Sophie Carpenter

Sophie Carpenter - Beats & Burn

BEATS & BURN VOL. 39 - AUGUST

This edition of Beats & Burn is a little different. When Sophie Carpenter agreed to create an end of summer playlist for us, we figured there would be no one better to capture the essence of that playlist through artwork than her. We've long admired her dreamy, Southern California inspired photos and agree that this playlist is the perfect companion for a day of exploration. Read on for why she picked these tunes and photo.

 

ABOUT THE PLAYLIST

"Southern California is the perfect place for a weekend road trip. You can be in the mountains, the desert or at the beach in just a couple of hours. Whether you are on a summer road trip, or just driving to work, these are some of my favorites songs to sing with the windows down.

ABOUT THE COVER ART

Sophie took this photo on a Sunday drive through Malibu. Parked outside of the Surfrider Malibu, this old school ride & rack of surfboards perfectly exemplifies what Sophie loves most about LA- access to nature and a laidback atmosphere.
