So is the foundation of your art sound or images? What is your idea of progress?
That’s a difficult question to answer. I would say that the foundation is my thoughts because they are what enable me to have a plan of what I am going to do. It’s not like I first think, “Ok, I’m going to make music, so I need to do that and that”. If anything builds the foundation, then it is thinking about the language I want to use. On the other hand, I don’t think you should find ways to legitimize or explain things that were already there after the fact. When I think about it historically, particularly as a child, music was never a “foundation”—it was more about just making sounds.
