Make/Work Episode 4: Jacopo Andreini


In Episode 4 of Make/Work, host Scott Pinkmountain talks with Italian musician Jacopo Andreini. Andreini is mainly known as a drummer and composer in bands like Squarcicatrici and L’Enfance Rouge, but that only makes up a small fraction of the work that he does.

“I’m a door-to-door salesman. I go from city to city presenting my ham, and cutting slices and giving free tastes, or cheap tastes to everyone, hoping that at the end of the night they want to buy the ham, or the CD in this case.”

Every creative laborer has a different story to tell about how they negotiate their relationship between their creative work and their paycheck and how they balance their lives to sustain their creative practice. In Make/Work, Scott will speak with emerging and established artists working in a wide range of creative mediums about how they survive, how they make a living, and how they maintain their work over the long term. New episodes will be released every other Thursday.
