The Carnal, the Corporeal, the Somatic Indistinguishable from Each Other: Conversation w Abe Schoener

Interpreting Doctor Schoener: A Video by cdsavoia

Earlier this week I got an email from Miguel de la Torre. He helps generate the cdsavoia video project, which creates short films presenting the work and personality of creative individuals in five fields — music, fashion, fine art, wine, and design.

As many of you already know, winemaker Abe Schoener and I have kept a sort of on going conversation. Both of us originate as professors of philosophy that somehow left that world to enter the world of wine. The trouble and promise of philosophy, however, is that it never leaves you. The on going conversation, then, has been based partially in Schoener and I sharing the compulsion of purposefully choosing sensual (that is, bodily) life with thought, of educated pleasure, of unbridled but directed curiosity.

Because of previous write-ups I’ve done on Abe, Miguel wrote to share the new video cdsavoia has just produced on the work and world of Abe Schoener, and offered me the chance to release the video here on my site as well. I took a watch before accepting, but it’s worth the view — charming, smart, well made, and a bit irreverent (the combination I look for in anything I do).

Check out the video here:

Or, you can watch it directly over at cdsavoia here:

If you’ve got time, take a look at their other video interviews too. They’ve got another recent one on winemaker Matt Dees of Jonata, the Hilt, and Goodland Wines too.

Thank you to Miguel de la Torre.

  1. Rachel Peak,

    Oh, I adore this video! It dives right into the joy of a curious, thoughtful life spent in a creative pursuit. Bravo!

  2. “I get the corporeal and carnal, but what’s somatic?”

    “I don’t know. What’s somatic with you?”

    Philosophy comedy.

  3. Inspiring, intriguing, and entertaining. Thanks for sharing!

  4. The video of the crushpad @ Tenbrink reminded me of the slightly madcap afternoon I helped Abe crush the 2006 Sylphs. Beyond that, I’m sworn to secrecy!

  5. Helen F.,

    The cdsavoia film on Abe is fantastic! I just discovered this treasure trove of inspiring, creative and beautifully executed short (All seem to be 5 minutes or less) films.

  6. Great video. All the videos on CDSAvoia video project, are very interesting. Can’t. Stop. Watching….
