Susan Muranty, The Uncompromising Artistic Beauty From Sydney - dHarmic Evolution Podcast
SINGING IS LIKE BREATHING TO ME. It gives me wings, it fills my lungs with sky. And I’m all about the sky. I’m obsessed with stars of all kinds – actual, astrological and Hollywood old-style glamour. I adore the colour blue and love the curious fact that … blue is the hottest flame. I live on an island in Sydney, one of the most civilised places on earth, but roar up a mountain-high fire trail in a four-wheel drive every night just to get home. My house is surrounded by wilderness but I am as passionate about fashion and beauty and art and food as I am about living with nature. Eleven is the most perfect number to me. Double that and you’re in another world. I came to music through the medium of words- as a lyricist and a poet with a story to tell. Songwriting is magic. I believe you get what you sing. And that’s why I sing about … love. I’m also a sculptor with a studio on the wild, windswept clifftops of Manly’s North Head. I work in bronze and recycled materials and am putting the finishing touches on a portrait bust of the painter Nora Heysen (the first woman to win the Archibald Prize) for the Hans Heysen Museum in South Australia. I guess you could say creativity is my passion – in fact, passion is my passion lol. I have a few foibles – coffee is one of them. Double shot, skim milk cap – or a Diva as I like to call it – and it must be freshly made, hot and in a actual cup not an upside down paper hat lol. Otherwise I’ll eat anything – except for tripe. Or whale. My son is a teenager, boat-mad and beautiful. In him, the Vikings reign again, but with 40 horse power engines. He’s the real reason I live so close to the water. Although I am a mermaid. The surf is like flying to me. Words matter. Without them, there is no song, just a piece of music and a singer with nothing to do. I love teaching. It’s another way of performing and I delight in that sense of sharing what I know, of opening up the music box of the world to young songwriters. My mantra is …words have power; stories must be told; songwriters know how to tell them … and so often in the company of other songwriters. Make a song with someone you love and your friendship will be bound up forever on a soul level that’s hard to define. It could just be all that oxytocin you release together – or it could be the sheer joy of sharing such an amazing experience.
