"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"The balloons look like whales suspended in the air...hovering above you, and the sound is kind of biomorphic like a bleating or whale sound. But it’s all based on a score that I put together using lots of old church hymns and ‘Sailor’s Hornpipe’ and ‘Swan Lake.’ There was an improvisational piece that I invited a guest composer in for. So there was this score...constrained to a scale of just twelve tones."
