In the method, Joe (and several other others within the movie) discuss one thing that may be very particular for artists — the “zone” of creativity. As portrayed in Soul, the zone is a second the place one principally loses themselves within their artwork, floating away on a vibe of creative affect. There’s a second throughout a key audition when Joe, whereas enjoying the piano, disappears into the zone. When he comes out of it, he apologizes to the lead performer, Dorothea (Angela Bassett). Ironically, it was his means to entry that zone that seemingly acquired him the gig.
