People have given me the freedom and believe in me enough to say if I want to do these things that I will find a way to make it work. I don't know if they think I'm crazy, drug damaged or just an old weirdo.
We never thought it would be something everyone would listen to. We never thought people who listen to Britney Spears would run to listen to it. It was intended for people on the fanatical side of production and hi-fi.
Anyway, Cat Stevens is never going to make much money out of us.
With out art, without communicating, we wouldn't live beyond 30 because we'd be so sad and depressed.
When we went to cover it I thought we would change it to a song of loving and longing instead of the sex machine song Kylie turned it into. I've met Kylie and told her we were covering her song and she was pleased.
Sometimes the song title comes with the songs, other times you just sorta make something up afterwards.
We love it when we make mistakes that are better than something you could think up.
We love playing music but we're too weird to play music.
It really is no different in the way that we make records and shoot music videos. I don't think of the movie as being a great leap out of my current profession.
I am not that thrilled about the way our records sound anyway. Don't get me wrong, I work hard on them and I want them to sound fantastic but I'm happy to have another interpretation of them anyway.
Most music that you hear is in synch with itself. We were experimenting with the music falling out of synch with itself and even though it is out of synch you mind can still understand what it is meant to be doing.
Music is amazing. There's some metaphysical comfort where it allows you to be isolated and alone while telling you that you are not alone... truly, the only cure for sadness is to share it with someone else.
We made music that wouldn't be in synch.
When we started there was this element of these experiments we were doing where we weren't really sure how the music would play out because the music was all on different players.
I can see that if this was an album done 10 or 15 years ago we could see we were moving on to some place else.
