I talked with Yvette Graveline about her spiritual path, her progressive politics, her interests in science, and her musical career.

We discussed her initial pondering of the universe and how this translated into studying music at the Berklee College of Music. We discussed her trajectory as a musician, including learning to compose piano music, composing songs for an EP put out by her band Bravestate, and performing at Carnegie Hall. We discussed the Marxist political implications of her music and how she just missed turning Bravestate into a nationally recognized band. We discussed her transition from her musical career to researching the brain as a neuroscientists with an interest in social cognitive neuroscience. We discussed her spiritual beliefs based on her research. We listened to music from Bravestate and her recent forays into film music. We listened to songs from her new album.
