"My approach tends to be from experiments. I need the challenge. If I know how to do something well, there's no need to do it all the time because it becomes a little monotonous. So I like to find a challenge."
"Sometimes we do get rain in L.A. A lot of us aren’t really prepared... The studio has areas in the ceiling that sometimes will leak. And it was really great, just walking in one time, and there were buckets around, all catching the drips. It just had a great sound in the space. So I was interested in using dripping water some way. I didn’t want just random drips; I wanted something that really felt like something you could dance to, something kind of choreographed-sounding. So I ended up making this almost computerized abacus. It was a machine that was sort of a drumming machine."
