What is art? What purpose does music serve? How can a person make or make it? Are they one and the same? I sit with Otis, a renowned violinist with San Francisco’s Friction Quartet, to unravel these questions. The answers, both raw and honest, involve more people and luck than originally thought. The war between creation and inspiration, expression and virtuosity creates for a conversation as deeply cinematic and effecting as a performance at any symphony.
