Making musical recordings is like turning oneself inside out, in this sense: I find an amorphous conglomerate ‘inner’ state in myself, draw it out and make it sensible to the outside world as a song and lyric (something sort of “alive”)… then I record it, freezing its life in a fixed moment to make an enveloping, structured thing–a sound recording– within which other people can dwell. It begins somewhere within, and it becomes something that holds others within it.


At the moment this is the best explanation of the process I can think of.

Not to imply at all that the whole process is mine — in my case, many other creative collaborators help move the living song to the recorded artifact, which is in the end a group product.

But today this seems like the most interesting point of view on the process.

No no no no no no no no no no no NO. A thousand times no! You know better than that.


Sanguine, I’d be very interested to know what your objection is to this metaphor. Perhaps I do know better, but I’ve forgotten today.

There is no inner state.


Ah yes, of course there is no actual inner state, any more than there is actually any ‘me’. I was speaking poetically here. Thanks for the reminder, though.
