The Art of Redemption
About This Show
The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Investigate the link between worldview and art
In this show the hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with The Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of The Arts. In doing this we examine how we are to view these arts as followers of Christ and how we need to engage our culture around us. These areas of The Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.

3 days ago
The summer series is called Interviews with the Artists. In the series Cody Anderson interviews a wide range of popular and not so popular artists in their fields. Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, Biblical historical fiction, and more...! In this episode Cody interviews Dan and Ning Gelok from Texas. Dan is a professor of saxophone at the University of Houston where he teaches well... uh...saxophone. Ning is an accomplished violinist and pianist who homeschool their kids, teaches some on the side and plays gigs occasionally. In this episode we get to know the Geloks a bit and hear about their particular field as musicians. We talk about popularity and pride that can come from being very accomplished and well known musicians and how a Christian worldview can help regulate and temper those feelings that com natural to all of us. We get into the art in Christendom and how often the music and other arts, produced by the Christian culture is often watered down, made for a wide audience to consume, and made to make a lot of money. This mindset causes it to be shallow and lack really any good doctrine. Its all happy style music that leads to a massive crescendo that isn't all that true and realistic. We talk about the style of music that the Gelok's play and produce and that with it being a new age or new classical style, it can be controversial because of the stretching that it causes in the music industry. Its not your everyday Mozart or Bach, its not traditional so it causes controversies for the listener in that they have to learn a new thing or a new way to appreciate it. They have to pick up a different lens to look through. The Gelok's Top recommendations: 1. Listen to live Music 2. Know the roots/history of your genre in the arts 3. Music: Miles Davis, Béla Bartók or Sergei Prokofiev 4. Books: The God Who is There
