PARALLEL presents Argentinean composer, musician and guitar player Alejandro Starosielski, as he shares what it takes to compose music, the true secret behind creating (hint: it’s not inspiration!) and contemplates on the one problem that makes art industries stay behind on becoming accessible to all. Gorgeous guitar tunes and great conversation, what is there not to love. He also happened to have composed the music for our previous film on visual artist Elisa Insua!
“To be a professional artist you have to tolerate frustration a lot, you have to be very patient and you have to be willing to engage in a battle with the material”. -Alejandro Starosielski
