A model of musical dialogue
The progression of innovation & refinement to decadence
Feel free to change my music
I don’t see why anyone’s composition should be above question if it leads to more authentic music-making.
My relationship with Illinois
The album provides emotional continuity across the nearly 15 years it’s been in my life.
Extensive vs. intensive expression
What you can choose vs. what the music wants
Dreaming all the time
It’s like dreams are the stars, and conscious thought is the sun.
I want to be a budding naturalist
Trying to learn the names of local plants, animals, fungi, and rocks
This is how I like to make ramen.
