Ikechúkwú Onyewuenyi, a curator at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, hopes to rouse a new generation of writers with “Chez Baldwin,” a 478-track, 32-hour-long Spotify playlist based on Baldwin’s vinyl record collection, as discovered when going through photos of Baldwin’s house in Provence, France. The collection gives a peek into Baldwin’s world – a soundtrack to what inspired or soothed him, to what served as his writing backdrop, to his entertaining soundtrack – the “sonic ambiance” to Baldwin’s life. You can pull up the entire list on Spotify under “Chez Baldwin” and can check out more about Onyewuenyi and the collection discovery by googling the Hyperallergic article “Listening to the Joy in James Baldwin’s Record Collection”.
