There's a lot of rubbish about, ain't there? And a lot of people posing. Who's taking that big box of noise and shaking it about riotously with a stupid grin on their faces, that's what I want to know.

Anyway. I love the idea of capturing events from the world and mutating them, live if possible. Like Mozart did with his pet bird, but in lieu of any sort of talent I'm forced to use my machines and stuff stolen from everywhere. Also, I love the idea of being surrounded by an infinite amount of stuff with its own form -- radio waves, car noises, buildings breathing, temperature cycles, weather systems, the ebb and flow of people, relationships, the pattern of emails, stars flickering -- that we can't normally perceive as form and being able to become aware of it by translating it all into music. Music, moreover, that makes you want to get up and shake yer booty. Or break down and cry. Or go and find happiness. Or whatever.

I'm not there yet. I may never be. I'm not very good. But it's fun.
