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 another two weeks in the books, Lundberg is back with a new edition of his acclaimed series. This week he is joined by musician, producer, engineer and doctor, Steven Savage. Music education is something we often don’t think enough about, but fortunately, we have people like Savage who do. He is the co-founder and Executive Director of the Blue Bear School of Music, based in San Francisco, California.
The school is celebrating its 50th year and in that time, it has taught over 40,000 students, with 850 students enrolled each quarter. Through his undying commitment to music education, Savage has helped negotiate over 60 community partnerships that have offered free music education to over 4,000 young men and women through local schools, community centers, churches, and shelters.
Discussing his conversation with Savage, Lundberg offers:
“At the beginning of this year, I had the absolute pleasure to wax poetics with Educator, Record Producer, Author, and Executive Director of the famed San Fransisco-based Blue Bear School of Music… Dr. Steven Savage.
“During our almost-hour discussion, we touch upon the humble beginnings of the Blue Bear School of Music, in which celebrated its 50-year anniversary last year! Additionally, we dive into, the importance of music education of youths within an urban setting, higher level societal topics, along a few famous name drops!
“So, please enjoy this very pleasant and heady conversation.”
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.
