We, at Moone Records, love to collaborate with people that inspire us and motivate us to create, but what inspires and motivates them? With this series of playlists, we ask different friends and artists to hand-pick ten songs to ‘soundtrack’ various themes.
Kyle Daniels is one of our favorite visual artists. His unconventional approach to art inspires us to see beauty in the mundane and influences the way we work and live. He explores emotions we do not usually want to confront, or even acknowledge. His work is greatly informed by guilt, disappointment, issues in masculinity, sentimentality, and how all of these things can affect our interpersonal relationships. Using objects and familiar imagery to speak for these subjects, he aims to open up a dialogue between the viewer and work so that they may begin to question the significance of the things and thoughts that surround or confine them.
We have asked Kyle to soundtrack one aspect that informs his work–guilt. He has gracefully hand-picked an unbelievable list of songs that will take you into the mind of a brilliant artist.
