Rick Rubin: Music and Spirituality

  • The esteemed record producer discusses art and nature in this inspiring video from Nowness

  • Tags:

    Rick Rubin is near the top of the list of the famous people who like to chill with. The legendary record producer, who famously launched Def Jam with Russell Simmons from his NYU dorm room, is not only one of most important architects in the history of popular music, but also a sage-figure on the path to spiritual enlightenment. In this short film, created by Alison Chernick for Nowness, Rubin contemplates life and art on the cliffs outside his Malibu home. The mogul ruminates on living in harmony with nature, the importance of recreating its perfection in art, and the transcendental power of sound before leading the viewer into a guided meditation, a practice he has followed since becoming fascinated with yogis as a teenager. “He is on a journey through the spiritual and creative wilderness,” says Chernick. “It’s transformative to witness.”
