Quote of the Day
I got interested in the idea of music that could make itself, in a sense, in the mid 1960s really, when I first heard composers like Terry Riley, and when I first started playing with tape recorders.
I started performing at two or three on a tape recorder, one of those little flat recorders where you just push play and record.
I like making little videos and little records. I've always loved video cameras and four-track cassette recorders, still cameras, anything.

I had this fascination with four-track recorders when I was in high school.

I often hid from the critical eye of their cameras and their omnipresent digital recorders, wary of the critique implicit in every captured moment. But I also grew to respect and understand their passion for their work, their love for the journey we were sharing.
