Arts Extract Interview

"I don’t have any kind of training in music, so everything has a bit of an improvisational feel to it, for me, at least, but these songs are 100 percent improvisation, except for the first couple of moments.

When I re-tuned my 12-string for example, to some of these tunings I wasn’t used to, I heard things happening that implied other things, and I found myself just kind of following—this is going to sound really hippie—I found myself kind of following the songs. If I got myself into funny corners, I’d just be patient and hang in there with it, and the funny corners would find a way to something that led out of it."
