I like to combine the dramatic emotional warmth of strings with the grooves and body business of drums and bass.
Architecture theory is very interesting.
I'm not suggesting people abandon musical instruments and start playing their cars and apartments, but I do think the reign of music as a commodity made only by professionals might be winding down.
To some extent I happily don't know what I'm doing. I feel that it's an artist's responsibility to trust that.
It seems almost backwards to me that my music seems the more emotional outlet, and the art stuff seems more about ideas.
There's something about music that encourages people to want to know more about the person that made it, and where it was recorded, what year it was done, what they were listening to, and all this kind of stuff. There's something that invites all this obsessive behavior.
We tend to mistake music for the physical object.
It's a fundamental, social attitude that the 1% supports symphonies and operas and doesn't support Johnny learning to program hip-hop beats. When I put it like that, it sounds like, 'Well, yeah,' but you start to think, 'Why not, though?' What makes one more valuable than another?
The making of music is profoundly affected by the market.
If anything, a lot of electronic music is music that no one listens to at home, hardly. It's really only to be heard when everyone's out enjoying it.
I've rarely kept my distance from kind of - I don't know if we can call it politics, but kind of, civic engagement and that kind of thing, except I tended to think, 'Well, do it yourself before you start telling other people what they should be doing.'
We don't make music - it makes us.
My favorite time of day is to get up and eat leftovers from dinner, especially spicy food.
I never listen to the radio unless I rent a car.
It didn't even occur to me that I'm the last person in the world who should play salsa or Brazilian music.
With music, you often don't have to translate it. It just affects you, and you don't know why.
So there's no guarantee if you like the music you will empathize with the culture and the people who made it. It doesn't necessarily happen. I think it can, but it doesn't necessarily happen. Which is kind of a shame.
People are already finding ways to make their music and play it in front of people and have a life in music, I guess, and I think that's pretty much all you can ask.
To shake your rump is to be environmentally aware.
As I define it, rock and roll is dead. The attitude isn't dead, but the music is no longer vital. It doesn't have the same meaning. The attitude, though, is still very much alive -- and it still informs other kinds of music.
