Randy Newman songs can tend toward the sardonic, but then there’s his music for animated movies, which can play your heartstrings like a violin. Newman brought his signature sound to the movie Cars 3 — we talk to him about it on Arts Alive. Plus, the Ensemble Theatre Company of Santa Barbara’s first professional summer training program for teens wants to teach aspiring actors as much about preparing as performing. Hear all about that, plus musicians’ pre-show rituals and more on the Arts Alive podcast.
From the Central Coast to San Diego, from Santa Monica to Palm Springs, there are fascinating people creating incredible art and performances. KUSC will be covering those experiences on Arts Alive. And when you’re in the mood for a little more, like a longer version of an interview, more Arts Alive coverage is available online at kusc.org/artsalive.
