PODCAST: Backstage: Episode #15 Emotions by Sage Gateshead published on 2019-03-15T09:56:19Z The Comet is Coming, Gabrielle, and participants from the Turn Up The Quiet programme at Sage Gateshead are among our guests appearing in this “Emotions” themed episode. As a tool for arousing emotions and feelings, music can be far more powerful than language and words. But it works both ways, with emotions shaping the music that artists make and how they perform or interpret it. So on this podcast episode, we hear from power trio The Comet is Coming on how they channel their emotions into cosmic jazz; Gabrielle, one of the UK's most successful British singer-songwriters, explains how she struggles to conceal her emotions on stage; and we meet a young woman learning how to express her emotions through song thanks to music-making classes at Sage Gateshead. Backstage is a regular podcast where we go behind the scenes for exclusive interviews and insights from leading and emerging artists who’ll be taking to the stage at Sage Gateshead, and discover some of the activities that take place, and the communities that meet there.
