The Art of Redemption

The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Investigate the link between worldview and art In this show the hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with The Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of The Arts. In doing this we examine how we are to view these arts as followers of Christ and how we need to engage our culture around us. These areas of The Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.

The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Bring a Christian Worldview to the Arts

 

In this show the hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with The Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of The Arts. In doing this we examine how we are to view these arts as followers of Christ and how we need to engage our culture around us. These areas of The Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.

The summer series is called Interviews with the Artists. In the series Cody Anderson interviews a wide range of popular and not so popular artists in their fields. Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

This episode we welcome an artist who is a staff writer for Humble Beast, a Spoken Word Poet, and Pastoral Assistant at Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Isaac Adams. Heard Isaac speak at TGC 17 this year when he did a spoken word piece for MLK50, a conference on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr. assassination.

In this interview we talk about Isaac and his art of writing and spoken word poetry and how that started in high school with writing love songs for crushes and how God intervened and redeemed his abilities as a lyricist for His Glory. 

We talk about his writing for Humble Beast and the three areas in which he aims his writing: The Local Church and how its indispensable, Race and understanding of the way things are seen, and The Arts and letting art be what it is. We talk about how these things impact his art, his preaching and teaching, and his writing. 

As we talk about art we get into how art is a type of thievery and how we need to take art and make it our own in that idea. How good art seems to always have a protagonist and an antagonist. How Christian art doesn't have to explicitly mention God or the Gospel to be good art and more.

Good art can be hard to find but it rewards your efforts. The world needs poetry because the world needs to slow down. Christian art tends to be schlawcky art or lazy art. These are some more topics we hit as we talk about art and art cultures. 

We also talk about Star Wars and what makes it so great even though its a non-christian find industry and George Lucas didn't intend for it to be a Christian piece. We, as Christians, can take good art made by the world and redeem the Gospel centric areas of that art and use it for our benefit and God's Glory. Join us as we talk about these things and more...

Isaac Adams' top recommendations and musts:

1. Christians Pray for your art

2. Have friends audit your art

3. Get a survey or review of you art annually from people you know

4. Challenge yourself and publish to non-christian outlets

The summer series is called Interviews with the Artists. In the series Cody Anderson interviews a wide range of popular and not so popular artists in their fields. Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

In this episode Cody interviews Dan and Ning Gelok from Texas. Dan is a professor of saxophone at the University of Houston where he teaches well... uh...saxophone. Ning is an accomplished violinist and pianist who homeschool their kids, teaches some on the side and plays gigs occasionally.

In this episode we get to know the Geloks a bit and hear about their particular field as musicians. We talk about popularity and pride that can come from being very accomplished and well known musicians and how a Christian worldview can help regulate and temper those feelings that com natural to all of us. 

We get into the art in Christendom and how often the music and other arts, produced by the Christian culture is often watered down, made for a wide audience to consume, and made to make a lot of money. This mindset causes it to be shallow and lack really any good doctrine. Its all happy style music that leads to a massive crescendo that isn't all that true and realistic.

We talk about the style of music that the Gelok's play and produce and that with it being a new age or new classical style, it can be controversial because of the stretching that it causes in the music industry. Its not your everyday Mozart or Bach, its not traditional so it causes controversies for the listener in that they have to learn a new thing or a new way to appreciate it. They have to pick up a different lens to look through.

 

The Gelok's Top recommendations:

1. Listen to live Music

2. Know the roots/history of your genre in the arts

3. Music: Miles DavisBéla Bartók or Sergei Prokofiev

4. Books: The God Who is There and Escape from Reason by Schaffer; The Rest is Noise by Alex Cross

Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

In this episode Cody interviews Les Lanphere from the Reformed Pubcast. Les is a computer graphics designer, film maker, and digital effects artist.

In the episode we talk about his past in design and how he ended up in his role in some hollywood films and his own movie he is making called Calvinist. How his rode has lead him to take up a mission to make a documentary about the Calvinistic resurgence in America, and how he's gotten to meet many of his heros of the faith. 

We talk about Christian art and how we should or shouldn't be doing it. Should it best the best? How should it be done or impact the world around us? What should it look like? and more... 

 

Les' Top Recommendations for artists:

1. Start a Podcast - make time to talk through things on purpose 

2. Lynda.com - training for software

Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...!

In this episode Cody interviews a returning guest and artist Paul Lytle. We talk about the life and music of Paul and when he started his music and music writing as a young boy. Paul was deep into Grunge and Post Grunge music and how that impacted his music. When he came into his 30's he started listening to music around him and became more aware of music as a whole and returned back to his keyboard in the new wave view of music.

We get a little deep into how the world and secular culture takes the order that God established from Chaos and and inverts that order into chaos. 

We also talk about Paul's Novels, available on Amazon, and his writing that he has done in the past. We dive into his art theory, his passion and his inspiration to keep writing and making music.

Paul's Top Reco's for every artist:

1. Tolkiens Essays

2. Angels in the Architecture by Douglas Wilson/ Douglas Jones

Barnabas' Top Recos for every Artist:

1. Vary your Genre and read widely
