Art Garfunkel

Art Garfunkel

“When Paul and I were first friends, starting in the sixth grade and seventh grade, we would sing a little together and we would make up radio shows and become disc jockeys on our home wire recorder. And then came rock and roll.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“We human beings are tuned such that we crave great melody and great lyrics. And if somebody writes a great song, it's timeless that we as humans are going to feel something for that and there's going to be a real appreciation.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“Before the world gets to know something that's neat, you get to know it. And you're your own spectator of what's coming out of you. And it's really kind of . .. delirious and happy. It made you want to giggle while you were singing, it was so much fun doing these things.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“I was a student at Columbia College, actually, in the Architecture school. Paul would drive in from Queens, showing me these new songs. I can't remember us working it out.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“I teach well. I used to really like teaching a lot. I enjoyed it a lot and I was good at it.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“I like working solo and it was a lot of fun joking around with the audience, saying things. I'm only just learning how to do certain things.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“I did have a lucky thing going on there in my throat.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“We'd knock on the doors, we knew the different companies we liked because we were listening to Alan Freed and we knew the different labels and they were all located there. We'd go up and we'd often sing live for the people. Which was very nervous-making, you know? They're busy, so if they don't like you, they cut you off right away.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“Because when you put on the earphones and go to work, I guess your commitment to art is greater than your lack of commitment to each other. So you always get responsible and serious toward doing your best work from the heart with all the beauty you have within you when it's tape time.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“Paul is like John Lennon. They're feisty. There's a rebellious attitude. You know, that's very acceptable. It's standard rebellious attitude stuff. The public tends to like that stuff. It shows that they're feisty, that they're not busy patronizing the proper-sounding, wholesome phrases of the culture.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“All I Know.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“We'd go to the fraternity house. It was a good place to practice. But we really wanted the kids to overhear us. And whoever heard us would go nuts over it.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“My parents both sang very casually around the house. My family bought a wire recorder in the forties when I grew up, and they would sing a little into the wire recorder. Not seriously but just to make music around the house, and I must have liked the pleasing sound and their harmony. There was a little singing in my childhood and I could do that myself, I realized.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“Records became much cruder in the last 20 years. Let's put it that way.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“To me, Bouguereau is like finding the Beatles before they happened.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“Rodgers and Hammerstein didn't mean anything to me. I just wanted to have a hit, I just wanted to be like those people on the radio. It was all of a case of the present tense with no projecting into the future, particularly.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“So it's mix and match. Hold your line when you really feel something you're saying is wonderful and you really want to get this point across and prove it to your partner by just throwing it into the tape and letting it speak for itself.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
“I used to chart the records. I used to listen Hit Parade. I was in love with the Hit Parade for its own sake. I loved the rise and fall of the records with their numbers. Records that went from 11 to four. It killed me because of the numbers. And I had my graph chart of all these things. And I was very mathematical.”More Art Garfunkel [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
After all these years, I'm finally into soccer. The World Cup is on, and my band is an international group - they're all around me, cheering in the hotel bars.More Art Garfunkel [08/17/2011 03:08:45]
I did have a lucky thing going on there in my throat.More Art Garfunkel [08/17/2011 03:08:51]
I like working solo and it was a lot of fun joking around with the audience, saying things. I'm only just learning how to do certain things.More Art Garfunkel [08/17/2011 03:08:57]
I was a student at Columbia College, actually, in the Architecture school. Paul would drive in from Queens, showing me these new songs. I can't remember us working it out.More Art Garfunkel [08/17/2011 03:08:16]
I would start seeing, in just the sense I was saying now, the kind of record it was going to be and what the arrangement demands, and what my vocal part should be in the record. This was all emerging as the song was emerging.More Art Garfunkel [08/17/2011 03:08:21]
I'm the kind of person who can hear that stuff. If you sing along to the radio and you're not going to sing unison with the melody, but find the harmony, I find that pretty easy to do.More Art Garfunkel [08/17/2011 03:08:28]
Paul has more, I think, of a feel for the stage. Whereas I have it more for the notes themselves. I love record making and mixing, arranging, producing. That I love. I love to make beautiful things, but I don't like to perform.More Art Garfunkel [08/17/2011 03:08:34]
