5 Questions with Sangram Majumdar
Sangram Majumdar: Somewhat. I tend to listen to something most of my day in the studio. WNYC is on at least for part of the day, and other times it’s music. Oh, and I have a studio uniform. I do the “Mr. Rogers” bit, where I change my outfit when I get into the studio. Also, I try to keep dark chocolate in my studio. It’s the answer to anything.
SM: I’m not actually attached to anything in my studio since everything either runs out or breaks, and therefore has to be remade. But I do tend to have “trusty” palette knives which are trickier to replace than one would think.
SM: Movies, books, and sometimes things I hear on NPR.
SM: Most of the artists/teachers I have felt a kinship to have/had a strong studio practice. So in essence I take that as advice. I tend to think that nothing happens until you do something and all ideas are valid.
VSC: Karaoke is a Saturday night tradition at VSC. If you could choose any song ever written, what would your dream karaoke performance be?
SM: That’s a tough one. Karaoke scares me profoundly.
