The band Wayfarer is a project spearheaded by a friend of ours. The Seattle band repurposes old hymns by setting them to new melodies. Whether or not your beliefs are aligned with those of traditional Protestant hymns, it’s hard to deny the poetry of the lyrics, and something about this pop arrangement—at least for me—brought to the forefront the hymn’s purity of emotion that might otherwise remain inaccessible to modern listeners. It’s an interesting project I’ll be keeping an eye on.

Above is Wayfarer’s first music video. Nice work Dan, et al.!

It’s all about how you’re putting what you do together. The elements you’re using don’t matter. Purity of human expression and experience is not confined to guitars, to tubes, to turntables, to microchips. There is no right way, no pure way of doing it. There’s just doing it.
- Bruce Springsteen in his keynote address at SXSW. It’s a great listen.
