Today on Commotion with Elamin Abdelmahmoud:

  • The rising cost of, well, everything, is forcing artists to change the way they work. Artists Ken Lum and Erin Finley talk about making art in this age of inflation.

  • Even after 25 years, whenever you hear Celine Dion’s hit song “My Heart Will Go On,” you can’t help but think of the movie Titanic. Simon Franglen is a Grammy-winning producer and composer based in LA. He remembers what it was like to work on the soundtrack, and the lengths they went to get the now-iconic song into James Cameron’s hands.

  • Plus, we remember songwriter and composer Burt Bacharach, who passed today at the age of 94.
