Idea for Popular Docuseries "Now Hear This" Born from Scott Yoo's Residency at the Butler School of Music
"Lynch met Yoo at the University of Texas at Austin’s Butler School of Music, where Yoo was hosting an event he normally held as part of Festival Mozaic in San Luis Obispo, Calif., which he directs. “Notable Encounters” was imagined as “a museum docent’s guide” to a particular piece of music — in this case, the trios of Brahms and their metaphorical relationship to his life . . . Lynch immediately took to Yoo’s engaging, jargon-free, dot-connecting approach to potentially esoteric musical ideas. There, in an audience of about six, he saw a show forming before his eyes."
