Why do we create art? Perhaps the most compelling explanation comes from the story of the high school class that wrote a group letter to author Kurt Vonnegut requesting that he speak at an upcoming literature fair. While Vonnegut declined, stating that age made travel difficult, he thanked them for their interest and offered an assignment. That evening after school, create something: a painting, a poem, a piece of music. Finish it and share it with no one. The idea is that we make art first and foremost for ourselves. It is an expression and an enrichment of our soul whether anyone else ever shares in our creation. There is however, a magic that comes from sharing our art. Through the eyes and ears of different people we experience our creation take on a separate life from our initial vision, often providing perspective we might never otherwise achieve. For performers, this catharsis occurs in the moment, feeding on the energy of the crowd. That is why The Neighborhood Dogs exists; we are not just a band, but voyagers on a long, undefined journey to explore the magic of the soul. No need for a ticket; just come aboard.
