We hold The Great Discontent’s traveler edition in high regard. The second issue again shows an exceptional level of curation and execution of interviews with various creatives. This issue is concise with excellent photography and pleasingly consistent typography and design and in keeping with their ‘risk taker’ ethic they pull in conversations about improvising and about going against the trend. An interview with musician and comedian Reggie Watts centres on his use of improvisation in his work, on his lack of a career plan and his response to working in the arts under a Trump presidency. The Australian band Kllo also highlight the use of improvisation in their creative process. While artist Maja Dlugolecki and new media artist, Zach Lieberman embrace non-linear routines.
