Guided by artistic desire and a true lover of artistry in all of its forms, Robert Lundberg has become a highly regarded photographer and filmmaker lauded for his innovative and versatile documentaries covering the worlds of music, comedy, art, and film. After spending his early years in Massachusetts, Lundberg moved to New York City where he more actively pursued a full-time career in art and film. Uniquely focused on seeking out the next big artistic challenge, Lundberg chose to pursue one of his most ambitious projects at the beginning of 2020 when he launched his new documentary series entitled Uncontaminated Sound – The Interviews.
Debuting in early 2020, the series follows comedians, musicians, fine artists, and actors with Lundberg’s primary goal to gain a particular insight into their creative processes which can only be thoroughly deciphered by truly going behind the scenes. With Uncontaminated Sound, Lundberg’s purpose is to offer an intimate look into all of the rarely seen or known “little things” that take place during interviews and other similar social and private interactions with artists and performers. Mainstream features are often heavily and unevenly edited, offering viewers only individual, preferred moments. In contrast, Lundberg is dedicated to delivering to you all of the real, raw, authentic moments that you would never otherwise have the opportunity to experience.
With two weeks past since the last installment, Lundberg has returned with another new edition of Uncontaminated Sound. This week, Lundberg welcomes one of his most accomplished guests to Uncontaminated Sound, producer, engineer, musician, and filmmaker D. James Goodwin. A phenomenally productive and inventive mind, Goodwin has become a highly sought-after producer for artists looking for an original, fresh approach to production and recording. For the last 15 years or so, he has operated out of his home base recording studio known as The Isokin, located in Woodstock, New York. He has also recently begun to work out of a fully equipped mobile recording studio that has afforded him the opportunity to seek out creative and inspirational sites and locations that you otherwise could never record in.
Goodwin’s list of credits is long and impressive, to say the least. He has produced for dozens of artists, with some of the more notable names including Pompeii, Murder by Death, Thursday, The Bravery, Devo, Rubik, and Grateful Dead founding member Bob Weir. The Isokon contains lots of unconventional instruments and devices. Located in a mid-century residential home, the studio is arranged with the specific purpose of making artists feel like they are vacationing in the woods and beauty of Upstate New York, a safe space where they can let their creative juices flow.
Discussing his conversation with Goodwin, Lundberg said:
“Conversation 57, for about an hour Kingston, New York-based record producer, mixer, photographer, and filmmaker Daniel James Goodwin and I nerded out over music, film scores, and photography.
Lighting a few smokes, Daniel wafted through the haze in which set the mood for reflection of decades in the studio…
We flow into the expanse of conversation with a pragmatic resolve to pull from the theoretical realm of creativity. All the while attempting to flesh out the objective truths of our artistry. Please enjoy.”
Lundberg has more interviews to come with acclaimed artists who have agreed to be a part of Uncontaminated Sound – The Interviews in the coming weeks and months. Lundberg has already been bringing you his ongoing series Uncontaminated Sound which takes a look behind the scenes to get a look at performers before they take the stage. The series has featured Macklemore’s Gemini Tour featuring Eric Nally (formerly of Foxy Shazam) and Xperience, the late Louie Anderson, Sinbad, Ron English, We Are Scientists, Rufus Wainwright and more. Lundberg’s photography has been highlighted in publications such as Huffington Post, Paste Magazine and more.
