How did you get into debt?
Student debt (BM, MFA, Ph.D)
How does your economic reality effect your art?
It is an integral part of it. I've made work that deals with affective dimensions of precarity and debt, including as my 2016 work, Complex Financial Instruments: http://gdouglasbarrett.com/music/cfi
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Perhaps. Although "looks" are less important than content in my work.
