Video: Rick Rubin On Music, Meditation, and Nature

Rick Rubin Music MeditationThis moment of zen from Rick Rubin arrived just in time for a peaceful start to the new year. Watch above, as the music producer/record label executive stars in and narrates a short film for Nowness, in which he discusses music’s relationship to nature, muses on his lifelong practice of meditation, and offers other sage advice from the Malibu coastline. Video interviews with Rubin are rare, so this piece — directed by Alison Chernick — is a very welcome look behind the bearded mogul’s subtle approach to guiding artists and living well.
