Importance of Hanging Out

Gertrude and Leo Stein’s home in Paris between 1903 and 1914 wasn’t just a living space but one where artists and intellectuals came to socialize and discuss the seismic shift in modern art that they were both witnessing and producing.

Albert Einstein’s apartment during his years at the Swiss patent office wasn’t just a break from his research but an extension of it. Friends would come over to discuss not only physics but clocks and philosophy which only stoked his own thinking.

The practice room is a pivotal role in the life of a musician but the living room can be easily neglected. Hanging out and discussing music or anything else isn’t just a break from music. It’s a stimulus.

All it takes is a statement, a question, or an opinion to lead us on to something. What better way to create more moments for this to happen then to gather often?
